IBS No More Stress!

$230 of $1,000 goal

Raised by 9 people in 11 months
Since I was 3 years old, the doctors didn't know what was wrong with me.  Over the years the stomach issues just kept getting worse.  I went through several doctors, hospitals, exams, blood tests, endoscopies, and more.  It wasn't until my endoscopy in 4th grade when they diagnosed me with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).  It is a common disorder that effects the large intesine, partially caused by diet and stress, and causing symptoms such as cramps, abdominal pain, bloating, and much more gross things that I'm sure none of you want to read... that I have dealt with my entire life.  Though IBS can not be cured, there are many many ways to treat and care for it, like certian medications, therapies, and a very important factor, self-care.  

       Though I suffer from this disorder, I never let it stop me from anything I want to accomplish.  That is why it brings me and my loved ones so much joy that I have accomplished holding the title of Miss American Teenager Jr 2018.  Every reigning queen usually has a purpose for why they entered the pagent from the beggining of the journey.  I chose for my cause to be IBS. Something that I feel very passionate about, and I wanted to share my life story of how I have done so much with my life like performing, filming, winning awards, and helping other people out with many differnt needs, and never let IBS stop me from doing such.  

       I will be handing over my title to the next beautiful and intelligent queen this summer in August, which means that for the next 8 months, I'm devoting my time to try to help as many patients as possible, like my self.  But, I can't do it all on my own, which is why I made this GoFundMe page!  The smallest amount will still go so far in what I am trying to accomplish with my title.  I would appreciate it so much if you all would join me on my journey.  It really feels go to help others out and I want you all to get that satisfied feeling as well.  All money raised will go to IFFGD, an orginization for gasteronial disoarders.  

       If you are someone who holds events, or works with a school, or any sorts, contact me at alyssanm8@yahoo.com, and I would be more than happy to speak and elaborate on how much this all means to me and be able to share my life story.  Thank you all so very much, and rember, no donation is too small!! Let's all make sure IBS causes no more stress!
