Patient Leader

My name is Christy. I share my experience with Crohn's Disease, life with a Permanent Ostomy and what it's like to balance being a wife and parent when you have a chronic illness. I feel pretty darned lucky to be a part of the IBD community. Helping others navigate to a successful path is my favorite thing in the world ~ right after being a wife and mother. I am grateful for that every day.

Christy is everything a health activist should be. Through her blog she tells her story, offers advice on life as a mom with a chronic illness, life with an ostomy, and so much more. She's creative, funny, talented, and keeps me wanting to read more through her real and honest account of life with Crohn's disease.  — Sara
