Katherine, Jeremy and I at camp last year

Remember when I told you guys I have awesome IBD friends? Well, I wasn’t kidding. Meet Katherine. I met her almost 3 years ago at Camp Oasis, and she is one of the sweetest people I have EVER met. I love this girl to pieces.

Katherine is apart of the movers and shakers that are behind the scenes at CCFA. She is a Chairman of CCFA’s National Youth Leadership Council (NYLC), What does this mean? It means shes a bad ass, that’s what. Katherine advocates for all kinds of IBD related issues, and does it where it counts, Washington, DC!

She was recently featured in a newsletter by the CCFA, where she told her story and what she’s doing to change the lives for those of us with IBD. Read all about it here.

I’m proud to have people like Katherine in my life!
