Gina Errichetti Kuglin
I'm asking for your support as I run the NYC marathon on November 1st, 2015 in honor of my daughter's best friend Dylan Garrison. Dylan was diagnosed with Crohn's disease this year, and to say it has been a tough year for her is an understatement. Any donation is greatly appreciated and no amount is too small.
This is Dylan's story in her own words: All last year I had one wish for Santa to bring me a phone. Around my birthday I started feeling different, but didn't think much of it.......by Christmas time, all I wanted was to feel better.....I didn't even care if he brought me a phone anymore. Santa made both my wishes come true, I not only got the phone but also found out that I have Crohn's disease. By taking medicine three times a day, I have been able to manage my disease. But other kids/adults are not so lucky. I may not be either next time.......so please help me and my best friend's mother, Gina Kuglin, support Team IBD for Kids to find a cure.
