My name is Rachel Bonner. I was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease in September of 2006 when I was eight years old. Prior to being diagnosed it was a long and hard battle with doctors and trying to find an answer. It was nothing but tests, doctor appointments, trying to get back and forth with school and keeping up with class and homework. It was as if the light at the end of the tunnel finally shone through when I was diagnosed. Ever since that day things have still not changed much. There are still tests, doctors and doctor appointments, medication changes, and keeping up with school. Present day I am working with my family and friends to help raise money for Crohn's research. Join us and other Crohn's patients in raising awareness and finding a cure for Crohn's disease.
