Team Member Jen's Charity of Choice: The Crohn's & Colitis Foundation
"In 1995, my mother was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease after years of painful symptoms and testing. At that time, there was very little known about the disease, its cause, or medications. After several hospitalizations, many medication trials, and surgeries, my mother's Crohn's went into remission. I am so thankful that my mom is doing well, and also that she is able to spend time with our family, including keeping up with her 2 grandchildren.
Crohn's disease is a type of inflammatory bowel disease that may affect any part of the gastrointestinal tract. There is no cure for Crohn's Disease, but current treatment options may help with symptoms, maintain remission, and can prevent relapse. Research is looking to find better treatments, a vaccine, and a cure. I chose the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation in honor my mother; an amazingly strong and compassionate woman, who has always been there for me even through the worst of her illness.” - Jen
