I was diagnosed with Crohn's when I was 11-years-old in 2004. Since then I have been struggling finding the right drug therapy for me to go into remission. I have been hospitalized more times than I can count and have endured three surgeries. Despite all of this I participate in Team Challenge every single year, and constantly try to raise awareness for the disease. I am currently in college in Vermont studying marketing and planning fundraisers in my free time. I love to snowboard, cook, and just have fun in any way possible. Even with Crohn's, I do whatever I can to stay positive and happy and try to always have a good time in whatever I am doing.
