Jody is an inspiration and I applaud her heroics. I also suffer from Crohn's and have empathy for all who have to suffer from this chronic disease. More IBD/Crohns suffers need to hear success stories like Jody's and know that Crohn's does not have to 'define' you. Thanks for a wonderful story of courage.

You Go Girl! Joan would be Proud & would have had a hysterical "one-liner" to boot! She'd probably tell you to lighten up a bit - you look very serious in the running pic.

New pic is creative & with a smile - Joan would approve. She'd like this quote from Laura Ingalls Wilder as well; "Remember me with smiles and laughter, for that is how I will remember you all. If you can only remember me with tears, then don't remember me at all."
