I have had crohns since 4+1/2 I'm 65 now.I have been active for many years helping others. I have 3 support sites on facebook which are https://www.facebook.com/groups/204337129693312/ https://www.facebook.com/groups/423797604407425/ and https://www.facebook.com/groups/197419897280748/ I try to help raise funds for CCFA.org, Cure 4 IBD. I have been dealing with thousands of others for over 15 years that were told they have Crohns, or Colitis, or Colon Cancer. Teenagers, young adults, middle age.things I learned through these many years that might help them physically or mentally get though day by day, year to year. I'm sincere and really care about others even when I am so sick myself.
