Take Steps for Crohn’s & Colitis Walk 2011

Happy Sunday everyone! 

I had a great day yesterday. My friend Alison, she is the person at the very left in the photo above, was the honored hero at yesterday’s CCFA Take Steps for Crohn’s and Colitis walk. I spent the day with her and some of my other friends from Camp Oasis. I met all of them there because we are all counselors. Alison and I were volunteers so we helped set up the walk by putting up the signs along the route and stocking the water stations. We even almost got attacked by a goose! 

In Alison’s speech she mentioned how she felt like there is a reason she ended up with Crohn’s disease. I actually think about that often. I feel like I have had such a difficult journey with IBD for a reason. Even though it has been tough and I’ve hated it a lot of the time; I feel like I am meant to do something with it. I don’t know. Maybe that’s just what I tell myself to make it easier?
