Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD) are chronic illnesses where your insides look like they’ve been scraped across pavement. There is no cure to this painful and often debilitating disease, although there are ways to manage it. At Rundle park, I joined hundreds of Edmontonians who walked an effort to raise awareness and funds.
I raised over $300 toward the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada (CCFC) for medical research toward a cure.
Canada has the highest rates of IBD in the world. I myself have ulcerative colitis. Finding a cure to these diseases would vastly improve the quality of life for so many people around the world.
