The Gift of Knowledge

Have you ever heard of Crohn’s Disease

 I never had, not really, until a close friend of mine started battling it.  And I truly do mean battling the disease.

I was shocked to learn how bad it really does get, and even more appalled that there IS NO CURE.  There’s only cocktails of harmful medicines that are ment to ease the symptoms.  There’s little support, little aid, and the medical treatments cost thousands each month.

I could rant on and on about the very little I have learned about this disease but Sarah can do a much better job telling you about what she has gone through.

The good news is that awareness of the disease is beginning to spread, and we are smack dab in the middle of Crohns and Colitis awareness Week

Now go here: http://online.ccfa.org/site/DocServer/IBD_Week_press_release.pdf?docID=17502  And do yourself a favor by learning a little more about this devastating disease. 

And when you’re done, share the awareness… it never hurts to be aware.

Help me turn the Internet PURPLE!
