On June 6th, Jonathan and I will participating in the San Francisco "Take Steps for Crohn's & Colitis Walk."
Jonathan was diagnosed with Crohn's disease when he was 16 years old. It is a painful digestive disease that can cause ulcerated sores anywere throughout a person's digestive tract. Currently there is no cure but people that suffer from this disease experience alterating periods of remittance and inflamation throughout their lifes. Treatment includes medication, surgery to remove "problem" areas (colon, intestine, etc) and even radiation.
This walk is meant to raise funds for research. We are asking for donations from friends and family. No obligation--any amount would be wonderful.
We are on a 3 member team called "Clare". It will be Jonathan, me and a friend of ours from church. If you are able to make a donation just go to the link below.
