Gutsy Walk June 4 2023

It might be too late for me when it comes to a cure for Crohn's or colitis, but we can still raise some money to help find that cure. 

So again I'm participating in the Crohn's and Colitis Canada's Gutsy Walk, on June 4, 2023, as part of Fraser Valley West.

Please click the link below to support my walk and help find the cure and raise awareness for IBD.

My Crohns Life: Fun Facts

Since my diagnosis, I have been a "professional sick person" and living with Crohn's disease for approximately:

34 years, 4 months and 23 days


412 months and 23 days...
1794 weeks and 5 days...
12,563 days...
301,512 hours...
18,090,720 minutes...
1,085,443,200...201...202...203 seconds

Furthermore, the earth is 24,902 miles. If you walk an average of 3 mph, it would take you 8300 hours if you didn't stop and you kept up that pace. That's 345 days.  (

So, having said all that and factoring in those facts, if I started walking around the world the first day I was diagnosed, I would have gone around 36 times by now! 

Things that make you go, hmmmmm.
