"As a fitness trainer, I've always priortized health and exercise. Unknown to many, underneath my fit exterior lies the effects of a disease that has plagued my body for more than a decade.
In 2005, I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis. In 2014, my flares began to get worse. I expected to hear that my disease was active and my treatment would need to be changed...what I didn't expect to hear was that I had colon cancer at 28 years old."

"I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in 2010 and in 2012 I had to have my entire large intestine removed due to a severe flare. It was a very challenging period and now I'm trying to give back to the ibd community in as many ways as I can.
I want to inspire patients and let them know there are people out there fighting for them."
