Vern Laine

Patient Leader

My name is Vern and I'm from British Columbia, Canada. I have been living with Crohn's Disease since 1988 when I was 20 years old. I started writing my blog, Crohns - Leaving The Seat Down, in 2009 as a diary of sorts for myself. Since then, its developed into place for me to vent, inform and laugh at a disease that is a lot more than just my bowels. I hope that my blog helps some of the newly diagnosed in some way and bring a smile to those of us IBD "vets"
