Scot Schroeder, Why I Walk Wednesday!

Hello friends and family,

This year, I will be walking in the Take Steps for Crohn's & Colitis Walk at Liberty State Park on June 12th. Take Steps is CCFA's national evening walk and celebration and the nation's largest event dedicated to finding cures for digestive diseases. It is a casual 2-3 mile stroll to raise money for crucial research, bringing us closer to a future free from Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. Over 1.4 million American adults and children are affected by these digestive diseases. While many suffer in silence, Take Steps brings together this community in a fun and energetic atmosphere, encouraging them to make noise and be heard.

My youngest son Michael age 5 has Crohn's disease and was diagnosed when he was just a baby. He has responded very well to the medication he is currently on and is now in a state of remission. Michael is a very active boy and you would never know by looking at him that he has the terrible disease. It was very fortunate that he was diagnosed very early in life. This is a double edged sword as he has to deal with the disease but fortunately this is all he knows and it is normal to him. Michael also suffers from food allergies and is prohibited from having items with milk or soy as well as Chicken, Turkey etc. Just about every food product has a form of milk or soy in it. Through trial and error Michael can experience a new food to see if his body can tolerate it. Hopefully he will outgrow most of the food allergies as his older brother Matthew (10) has. Matthew was born with an allergy to milk but for the most part has outgrown most of it and can now tolerate foods with milk on a limited basis.

Since Michael and Matthew love LEGO's we have decided to name our team TEAM LEGO MY COLON. Your donation will help support local patient programs, as well as important research projects. This cause is very important to me and I appreciate your help as we fight for a cure! In addition to donating, you can join me at the event. There will be food, music and kid's activities. The more money we raise, the closer we will be to making life more manageable for patients who live with these diseases every day.

Please join me or donate to my efforts to support CCFA in finding a cure!

Sincerely,

Scot, Matthew & Michael
