If one must be an IBDer, now is the time to be one.
Ok, so while having IBD is a literal pain in the butt, there has been such amazing progress in the IBD space. There are new treatments, there is more awareness, and now it’s looking like there are a lot more fun and exciting ways to get support.
One support event (and by event I mean pretty awesome experience) was thrown my way by the Children’s Hospital in LA. The hospital has partnered with Taglit Birthright Israel and the Jewish Federation in Philadelphia (and the CCFA) to organize a trip to Israel for May 29th-June 9. This trip is open to Jewish young adults between the ages of 18-26 who have never visited Israel with peers.
Unfortunately, I’ve already been to Israel (this year!) so I wont be able to attend. Sorrrrry guys.
