I write a blog documenting my journey of living with Inflammatory Bowel Disease. 'Colitis and Me' was set up through the frustration of people not understanding the daily struggles of living with a life long illness such as Ulcerative Colitis. I now spend my free time blogging, fundraising, campaigning and advocating for both Crohn's Disease or Ulcerative Colitis. Proud to claim I Co-founded of the highly successful #GetYourBellyOut awareness campaign that's lifting the lid on the often invisible and rarely spoken about topic of IBD on a global scale! I spend my free time documenting my journey in the hope of inspiring others to find their voice and way in the world.
I've seen Victoria Marie become such a strong voice for the IBD community over the last year, that I couldn't possibly think of another advocate as deserving as her. Her contributions to the #GetYourBellyOut campaign has brought about a shift in how people with IBD view themselves and their scars. She tirelessly works to help others in need. — Eric
Victoria is an amazing advocate who - in the comparatively short time she's been online - has done a truly outstanding job of raising awareness about IBD. Blog, Google+, Twitter, Facebook and more, Victoria is a genuinely beautiful and caring soul that the global IBD community is lucky to have :-) — Stephen
