A message from Troy Hummel:
Ranked 3 of 36 fundraisers - $1,200 raised by 21 supporters
My battle with Ulcerative Colitis started at the age of 12, and after 8 years of constant medication and doctor visits, I made the hardest decision of my life at 20 years old to undergo a colectomy. This year, I am asking for your support in helping me raise awareness for this invisible illness. As an ambassador for Jake Diekman’s “Gut It Out” fundraiser, I am asking you to help me by making a donation to support the Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis community. Help me contribute to finding a cure for those who still suffer today. I truly appreciate your support, thank you and #GutItOut!
This season, I’m back with a new team and I’m pledging $100 for every strikeout that I earn to help fund crucial research projects making advancements towards finding a cure for Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis, and to improve the quality of life for the estimated 1.6 million Americans affected by IBD. I hope you’ll consider joining me in making a pledge. A pledge of any amount, big or small, has the ability to make an impact for IBD patients across the country.
I am passionate about raising money to improve the quality of life for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients and investing in research to find a cure because I know the toll that IBD can take on an individual, both physically and mentally. There is no cure for Crohn’s or ulcerative colitis. They are lifetime diseases that are painful and at times, debilitating. Children are robbed of their childhood due to the diseases and their side effects. My heart aches seeing young IBD patients in the hospital for three or four months at a time because their system is so weak and their bodies can’t handle it. This campaign is for them. They need our support.
Take the pledge, and #GutItOut with me this season!
