Oh, apologies, I came over all Geldoff then!!
For the past 18 months I have been raising awareness, spreading positivity and sharing my journey with Inflammatory Bowel Disease. I do this through this blog, Facebook, youtube and twitter because it means so much to me to be able to share my story and let other people with IBD know they aren’t alone.
In 2004 I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis and in 2013 I had a colectomy, surgery to remove my large intestine, I had an ostomy bag for 8 months and then had more surgery to create an internal pouch. My 11 year journey has been hard, the last 18 months have been to toughest of my whole life. I battle every day and my road to recovery is long and arduous.
Crohns and Colitis UK mean an awful lot to me and so my aim for 2015 is to make as much money as possible for this great charity to get more support for sufferers and give money for research to find better treatment for the future.
I will be doing a variety of things to raise money over the coming months, and if anyone has a spare pound or two to put in the pot at any time, it will be greatly appreciated.
