In 2013 my best pal was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. Undergoing several major operations, spending what felt like a lifetime in hospital and an insanely long recovery process, it's a condition that has changed his life.
3 1/2 years later he is almost done with his degree, is going on to do a Masters and is now doing a 10K run to raise money for the Crohn's MAP vaccine. This vaccine could potentially cure Crohn's and other debilitating and aggressive inflammatory bowel diseases.
I cannot express how proud I am of this human being! He is an inspiration and I love him so bloody much!
If you can spare a few pennies, the link to his just giving page is in my bio. ❤
