I have been diagnosed with Crohns Disease for about ten years now and I consider myself to be one of the lucky ones, as up until now I have had only a few stays in hospital due to flare ups. I take medication 2 – 3 times a day for the rest of my life and eat as sensibly as I can.
There are many a child / adult suffering horrendously with this disease, it is still a very grey area and hopefully any money that I can raise will be put to good use and hopefully raise the awareness of Crohn’s & Colitis. To find out more about the important work the charity does, click on their logo to visit the site.
Part of my reason for attempting the challenges is to raise awareness about Crohns & Colitis. I also feel it’s important to show that it’s possible to lead an active life and to inspire other sufferers to achieve their potential.
