Zachary's Connecting to Cure Crohn's Disease

THE STORY:

Two and half years ago our Zachary was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease. He was very ill and not thriving. Since then he has been poked and prodded, now he receives biweekly injections at home. He has been through more than we feel most children age 6-9 should have to go through. He has through it all been amazing and is more resilient than you could possibly imagine. We are happy to say he is doing well and has grown a lot since beginning his new medication last year. He is growing and thriving. It hasn't been easy. Zachary is aware this is a disease he will be managing the rest of his life. Unfortunately he is not alone and there are and we have met other children with Crohn's Disease over the past couple years. We are committed to supporting our son and other families living with Crohn's Disease and those trying to find a cure. We have been blessed to have an extraordinary team of doctors and Connecting to Cure Crohn's Disease supporting us. We are grateful! Please make a donation for our Zachary and all the families and research Connecting to Cure Crohn's Disease & Colitis supports. My plan was to run the Los Angeles Half Marathon to raise funds and support this very important cause and for our son. Last year as soon as Zachary started his new medication I was diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer and due to the treatments and side affects I am unable to run this year. It's not about the running though it is all about the cause that has deeply effected our son and our family. I will be there cheering on our team and would love your support. So please if you can make a donation, any amount makes a huge difference. Let's show Zachary the difference we can make despite the circumstances! That's what o try to do with him and for him everyday. Thank you! 💖
