  • Hey all, I'm Matt. I go to school at The George Washington University and I'm a biology major. I was diagnosed with UC in March 2011 during my sophomore year. After a hard-fought battle and a rough experience with UC, I needed surgery to remove my colon in December 2011. I ended up missing my junior year, but after multiple surgeries and a long recovery, I was able to return to college in the Fall of 2012. Currently, I'm finishing up my junior year and still learning the ropes on how to live with a J-Pouch. I'm looking forward to getting more into Crohns and Colitis awareness, and I'd love to meet other young people who have dealt with IBD or are still battling it. Feel free to email, facebook, or tweet me and I'd love to chat.
