The Crohn’sAdvocate(TM) Online Forum is still open for Registration for Tonights Forum

I just received an email from Crohn’s Advocate offering an online forum, check it out, pass it on to others who could benefit. I’ve enjoyed getting my Crohn’s Advocate free magazine, it’s filled with information that has helped me over the years. They offer patient resources, information about health care professionals, important safety information, information about CIMZIA and it’s side effects, support and encouragement. It provides a safe place to ask the hard questions.

Tonight’s Event Details includes:

Advocacy for Patients with Chronic Illness, Inc.

I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease in 2001 at the age of 38. After a constant battle, several surgeries, 18 blood transfusions, and more medications than I can remember. I’ve experienced events that will haunt me forever. My disease has taken my life hostage, twisted it, making each day a constant battle just to survive; every day is a new challenge. I’ve lost everything from my job, my home, my medical insurance, life as I knew it and everything that meant anything. Suffering from severe complications and side effects while fighting for my rights to Social Security Insurance and Disability Insurance… this is what my life has become. Finding help and answers has been very difficult. Your help in Supporting Advocacy for Patients with Chronic Illness, Inc. would help me and others like me suffering from these same experiences. Thank you for your, Love Hugs and Prayers to all of you♥
