Sara

Patient Leader

The name Sara is pretty common so ask for the one without a rectum and you'll find me! ;-p I have Crohn's disease, a rare disease called chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction, and had surgery to have my large intestine removed. I started my advocacy on YouTube and could have never imagined it would lead my life in this direction.

Lifetime Achievement

Sara has been a voice of reason for those with rare diseases, as well as the IBD community. Her resources, time spent in collaboration w/other patients & her unwavering dedication towards patient education helps others along their journeys. Despite serious health crises, Sara works hard to educate others to advocate better for themselves.  — Kelly
