Welcome to Brittany's Personal Page
Inspired by a loved one who has faced life altering challenges caused by Colitis, I have decided to make a difference in the fight against Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. On October 8, 2017, I will run in the Bank of America Chicago Marathon. This will be a big undertaking, but I will try to run with the strength I have seen my loved one use to fight the disease. However daunting the training process may be, this pursuit will all be worth it because your donations will not only motivate me to the finish, but they will help us get closer to the cure.
Won’t you please consider a donation today?
About Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis
Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are both major categories of Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD). IBD affects an estimated 1.6 million Americans. These chronic diseases tend to run in families and they affect males and females equally. Crohn’s disease is a chronic inflammatory condition of the gastrointestinal tract and may affect any part from the mouth to the anus. Ulcerative colitis is a chronic inflammatory condition limited to the colon, otherwise known as the large intestine.
The Mission of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America is: To cure and prevent Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis through research, and to improve the quality of life of children and adults affected by these digestive diseases through education and support.
