A word from Kari.
My name is Kari Kolb and I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis over 10 years ago. UC and Crohn's are called Inflammatory Bowel Disease and currently there is NO CURE. My medication, which is part chemotherapy is given through a chest port IV every 6 weeks. It is expensive, and makes me feel exhausted all of the time. The frustrating part is, the hope right now is for remission and not a cure. I want to change that. While this disease leaves me feeling very helpless a lot of the time, I have decided I want to help make a difference. Every dollar raised goes directly to research and patient programs.I want to raise money to help end this awful invisible illness. People like my sweet 4 year old friend who has been hospitalized so many times. People like my two amazing daughters that deserve a more active mama. People that have lost their battle to IBD's. I would appreciate your support. more than I could ever tell you.
