Sharon Coyle-Saeed

Patient Leader

My name is Sharon and I am just so honored to be nominated for this award! I am the CEO and founder of ibdjourneys---an organization created to connect others with Inflammatory Bowel Disease, share our stories and hopefully inspire each other with the knowledge if knowing no one is alone. ibdjourneys is more than a support group, it is a family an ibdfamily!!! We celebrate birthdays, mourn and honor lives lost and cry with each other through the bad days and rejoice during anyones good ones!!! ibdjourneys other goal other than being a support is to spread awareness so one day, IBD can be known as a household name with the raising the roof on awareness it is my dream and a promise to my hospital roommmate/bestie/sister friend and fellow warrior of IBD who passed on that I wont stop till my last breath and I cant go on anymore to achieve these goals!!! I cant wait to hear more of your journey ----for everyone has one and looking forward to meeting more of our IBD family----for there is strength in numbers!!! Thank you once again for the nomination! Lastly but most importantly, ibdjourneys was started from my computer, however, it is a grassroots organization and can not survive without each and every member!!! Our group started in October 2012, but has reached to over 1,000 on facebook within a years time and is growing on a daily basis. I humbly accept this nomination for each and every member past, present and future!!!
