take steps

You may have noticed a new button on the right of my blog.
This year, our family is participating in the Take Steps for Crohn's & Colitis Walk.

As some of you know, Dave was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease in 2001. 
At this point in time Dave’s Crohn’s is generally under control with daily meds… 
yet we are excited to help support the research in finding a cure...
so that he may live pain and pill free!

Today marks the 1st ever World IBD Day.
IBD, which stands for inflammatory bowel diseases, is comprised of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis — two serious, chronic digestive diseases that affect five million people worldwide (1.4 million in the U.S. alone). Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis directly affect the digestive system and cause intestinal tissue to become inflamed, form sores, and bleed easily. There is no cure, no known cause, and little public understanding of the pain and chronic suffering with which IBD patients courageously cope every day of their lives.

Please consider supporting our family, and many others...
by walking with us or donating to support CCFA in finding a cure!

Dave, Lilly, Cohen and I thank you :)
