Marcy’s Mission: Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA)

On December 4th, My friend Marcy will run the 13.1-mile race with Team Challenge at the Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas Half Marathon to raise $3,500.00 for ‘awareness and research leading to improved treatment options and a cure for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.’ This month, proceeds from my artwork sold will be donated to Marcy’s team challenge for the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA)oo

Here is a quick excerpt from Marcy’s Mission website:

“It is estimated that as many as 1.4 million Americans suffer from some form of chronic digestive disorder; however, many more suffer in silence due to the risk of embarrassment and alienation. Both Crohn’s and colitis are inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) that mostly affect adolescents and young adults, although they can occur at any age.”
