Izzy's Trip to Beat IBD

Organized by: Melina Luke-Mendez

Melina's Photo


I have spent almost the last three years of my life in a hospital-constantly in and out. I recently had major surgery to cure my disease. I suffered from a severe form of Ulcerative Colitis which is part of the broader term Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). I recently had major surgery to hopefully cure this disease. I say hopefully because I could develop the other form of IBD called Crohns which is not curable. I want to spend my teenage years traveling and seeing the world before (even if I do develop it ...)Crohns. (My mother is helping and overseeing everything.)
