For over 40 years, the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) has paved the way to a cure by creating the first research programs dedicated to these diseases. However, there has never been a greater opportunity for progress that today. With science advancing through genetic discovery and escalating numbers of new cases, the need for funding is greater than it has ever been. Team Challenge for Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis is helping raise the funds needed to make these diseases history.

Meet Dana. This 24-year-old can't remember life without digestive disease. Diagnosed with Crohn's disease at age three, she has been in and out of the hospital nearly her whole life, missing out on events like her prom and summer break while recovering from surgeries. Even after enduring a life-threatening complication on top of all that, this college student embodies hope, perseverance, and empathy beyond her years.

Dana's life with Crohn's disease has taught her some valuable life lessons she may have otherwise not learned. "I have great empathy for those around me. I truly appreciate my life, each and every day, and my health," she says. "While living with Crohn's may be tough, it has taught me I can persevere through anything and be a fighter." And fighting is what Dana is doing for Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis patients across the country - fighting to raise awareness and critical research dollars. Help join in her challenge to change lives and find a cure.
