✨ On January 23rd, I complete my 45th trip around the sun.☀️
For my BIG 4-5, I'm raising money for the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation. The mission behind the Chrohn's and Colitis Foundation is "to cure Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis and to improve the quality of life of children and adults affected by these diseases."❤️
Below (and in my profile) is the link that takes you directly to the fundraising page: https://www.facebook.com/donate/407436953677936/ I've chosen this organization because these diseases have affected my immediate and extended family members, as well as people who I've met through the organization that have become good friends. Chrohn's and Colitis are silent and chronic diseases, and people with these conditions often suffer in silence and pain.
A few years back, when the boys were really young, the local chapter provided us with the right doctors that led to the correct diagnosis, care, and knowledge after months of watching my husband in pain and deteriorating. I'll never forget how the Director at the time (Carly Beck Bazzett) was so incredibly kind as my husband, my father, and I all broke down in her office after months of keeping it together. Being naturally private and not good at asking for help, I will always be grateful for this foundation's support and community as we began a learning and healing path.❤️
If you would like to help me support this wonderful and vital organization, we can help research continue and give the gift of physical and mental health to so many families. Your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $50.
Every little bit helps. Thank you so much for your support!🥰 (Facebook pays all the processing fees for you, so 100% of your donation goes directly to the nonprofit.)
