May 19th, 2018 – Why is World IBD Day, or IBD advocacy in general, important? It really isn’t… until it is.
The Gutsy Walk for Crohn’s and Colitis Canada is one of the main funding sources allocated to IBD research by the organization. Last year, over $3,000,000 was raised, and we hope to do even better this year!
Sometimes we keep too much “stuff” around, and sometimes that stuff includes ostomy supplies. Many ostomates hold onto extra supplies until they pass their expiry date (yes, ostomy supplies DO expire), or we throw out perfectly good products that are of no use to us.
This year I have a chance to fight back against Crohn’s and to show that I still have plenty of fight left in me. Along with my daughter, Jasmine, I’ll be participating in this year’s Gutsy Walk, presented by Crohn’s and Colitis Canada on June 8th, 2014.
