Welcome to my CURE for IBD personal fundraising page!
I will forever be raising money towards Crohn's and Colitis until a cure is found. Christian, my 4 year old son, diagnosed before his 2nd birthday, spent much of his second year in excrutiating pain before his Crohn's diagnosis. For him, as well as many, the suffering doesn't end once diagnosed. The current therapies and medicines can be as bad as the diseases. Luckily for Christian, enteral therapy every night for the last 2 years has kept him relatively healthier than most of his IBD peer group. However, I never thought I'd be thankful that my son has to stay healthy by having a permanent tube in his stomach that feeds him 80% of his nutrition while he sleeps attached to a machine. I want better for Christian. A normal life without specialists, daily medicines and sleeping attached to equipment.
I am proud to say that CURE for IBD only supports research so that cures can be found sooner.
I can't thank you enough for your support. Your generosity brings hope for so many people who suffer from these diseases.
PS - I would also like to invite you (or anyone you know) to consider setting up your own CURE for IBD fundraising page. It's free and there are no age limits or fundraising requirements, so even kids can get involved in a charitable cause! There is strength in numbers, and together, we can cure Inflammatory Bowel Disease!
