Crohn's Disease

Crohn's disease is a type of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that may affect any part of the gastrointestinal tract. Signs and symptoms often include abdominal pain, diarrhea, fever, and weight loss, and possible bowel obstruction.  Other complications may occur outside the gastrointestinal tract and include anemia, skin rashes, arthritis, and tiredness.  Crohn's disease is caused by a combination of environmental, immune and bacterial factors in genetically susceptible individuals. It results in a chronic inflammatory disorder, in which the body's immune system attacks the gastrointestinal tract possibly directed at microbial antigens.

Elena Desserich - The Cure Starts Now

"It all started with a little girl named Elena. She too was a victim of brainstem glioma and she was five years old. Within months she lost her voice and soon afterward experienced partial paralysis. Still she kept fighting and inspiring those around her with her courage. Soon her story reached tens of thousands of people nationwide and her artwork, termed as "iconic" by other artists, became a fixture in hundreds of homes and hung on the wall of her local art museum. Today it serves as our logo and our inspiration to the fight we carry on in her name. Sadly, her fight ended just nine months later in her bed alongside her mother and her father." For more on the Cure Starts Now Foundation visit: http://www.thecurestartsnow.org/ During her fight for life, Elena's parents kept a journal. The journal is the story of Elena and her fight against pediatric brain cancer as well as her parents and her sisters grief and emotional journey.
