Hi, I’m Kevin. Thank you for taking the time to read my story. In 2001, I was diagnosed with Ulcerative colitis when I was 12 years old. Over the 17 years of having the disease, my doctors and I have tried everything- steroids, suppositories, enemas, imuno-surpressant drugs (Humira, Remicade, Simponi, Entyvio) to name a few. However, none of them seemed to work for very long. Everything came to a head around Easter 2018, when my family and I decided the only move forward was to remove my colon in a very intensive surgery.

After having that surgery, I had to go back to the hospital 3 times due to complications. I am not in the clear yet. I still have 2 more surgeries to go to construct a J-Pouch for what I hope will be a more permanent solution to my digestive problems. The second surgery will take place October 25th, and the next about 3 months after that. This is the best chance I have to live a normal, pain-free life. Several hospital visits and major surgery has taken its toll financially and personally. I appreciate any and all donations, no matter how small. 

THANK YOU!

Hi everyone, just wanted to give a quick update...the second surgery (supposedly the hardest) went a lot better than expected and was a big success. I'm working out and getting stronger everyday and counting down the days until my final surgery sometime in early 2019. I'll be updating again as that surgery approaches. Again, thank you to everybody for contributing to my fund and to all the great people still showin love & support.

- Kevin
