{CCFA} Take Steps for Isabella

Ok so here it is July something or other and I feel I've been running all summer long and I still have so much more to do.

BUT...through all this I am also doing the CCFA walk for a cure for Crohn's and Ulcerative Colitis.  Remember Isabella was diagnosed last spring with UC and it has been a whirl wind year and a half.  She is doing good.  We just met with her GI Doctor on Monday and he said even though it could be better it could be worse too.  He tell that to us all the time.  So that is what we think.  She has flare ups every 6-8 weeks and is miserable for 4-6 weeks.  But she has great spirit and is thriving.  She is strong.

But we need your help, there is NO cure for this stinking disease.  She will have it forever unless there is a cure or they remove her colon.  We are doing a walk in her honor Sunday September 9th at the local Huntsville Botanical Garden.  We are trying to raise money and our team goal is  $1500.  It may seem like a lot but last year we came close to that goal.  Please help, any amount is appreciated and if you'd like to come walk with us, be there by 3PM.

Click on the link above and it will take you to the take steps site.  Click on DONATE NOW, put in Isabella Fratangelo and click on her name or the team name which is The B Team, then you can join our team or donate to her.  Every little bit helps. Thank you for your support.
