My name is Holly and I have Crohns Disease
I am a normal girl in the sense that I have two part time jobs and am completing a University Degree , a social life and a fantastic family.
However, my body is trying to kill me.
I run @mycrohnsfitspo which is an inspirational Instagram account for anyone with a chronic illness.
I want to run a support group aimed at teenagers and young people with Crohns bringing us together.
-Somewhere to go where everyone is the same and in the same situation.
-A place to share problems and help one another with issues related to Crohns and other Chronic illnesses.
-Cookery classes for people with Crohns, creating menus and food reviews and a blog site where all this can be documented.
-Funding for trips out to build confidence and self esteem.
-A chance to engage in crafts and hobbies to gain a sense of fun and achievement.
The Funding is for a room for us to stay in a central location once a week that is accessible for people on public transport. Also media coverage, I am hoping for at least 4 newspaper adverts, an advert in all Crohns and Colitis publications, and a teen magazine if I can. Also contacting 'famous' internet Crohnies to gain their support!
Thanks for your help! :)
