I spin for so many people living their lives with these diseases — countless amazing people I met through my incredible job with CCFA, some wonderful and inspiring friends and family members, but most of all my mom. My mom has always been one of my biggest supporters, and as such she participated in two half marathons for CCFA, while I was working there (raising over $10,000!!) mostly because she supported me and causes that I care about, and because she’s just pretty fantastic. But, in an ironic turn of events, this year she was diagnosed with Crohn’s — what are the chances?! Well, about 1 in 200 to be exact, but if you look at my network you would think it’s so many more. Thank you for supporting me and my mom as we take small steps/spin towards cures in the near future!
Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are both major categories of Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD). IBD affects an estimated 1.6 million Americans. These chronic diseases tend to run in families and they affect males and females equally. Crohn’s disease is a chronic inflammatory condition of the gastrointestinal tract and may affect any part from the mouth to the anus. Ulcerative colitis is a chronic inflammatory condition limited to the colon, otherwise known as the large intestine.
