crohn's walk 2011

Dave was diagnosed with Crohn's disease in December of 2001.
last year we were lucky to participate for the first time in the Crohn's walk and we are happy to be able to participate again this year
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.
doctor's say dave in remission, and for that we are extremely thankful... but he still struggles with stomach issues more often than is liked and takes medicine 3 times a day to help control his discomfort.

finding the cause and a cure for this disease would be amazing. 
to our family, and so many others.
we are supporting that mission. by taking steps for chron's and colitis.

thank you :)
