Jaime's Taking a Challenge....
and it's not to see how many beers she can drink!
Care to join me?
I'm walking towards a cure!
Thank you so much for helping me reach my goal!
I am one of over a million Americans living with Crohn’s disease. There is, currently, NO cure for Crohn's disease. The Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation (CCFA) is on a mission to cure and improve the quality of life of those living with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.

Challenging Myself to Change a Life…..

Unlike 7 years ago when I was first diagnosed, my Crohn's is manageable, and I'm feeling energetic, strong, capable. I'm one of the fortunate patients that after having almost a foot of my small intestine removed and a gazzion pills later, I'm living virtually pain free. This does not mean always symptom free, I know where all the good bathrooms are in Atlanta! Living with Crohn's means learning the importance of taking advantage of these periods of good health; I never know how long it will last.

As most of you know me pretty well, I have to say I am a bit nervous to participate in this new CCFA Team Challenge event. I will be training to walk a ½ marathon (13.1 miles). After 16 weeks of training, my team and I will fly down to Miami and participate in the ING Miami ½ Marathon. A walk for me now is generally around the block for a beer and dinner (when I can eat), but I feel its time to take on a new challenge!

Becoming Part of the Cure….

Also graciously accepted are your good wishes and positive energy as I attempt to train and successfully complete Team Challenge's 13.1 miles on January 27, 2008. I am committed--fingers crossed that my Crohn's won't get in the way--to crossing the finish line and at the same time raising money for a cure!
