Stacey has severe Crohn's disease, which causes oppressive and painful inflammation of her gastrointestinal tract. She has had her colon removed and has a J pouch, which is not working properly. She suffers from chronic inflammation of this pouch, which leads to severe, spasmodic abdominal pain and persistent malnutrition.
Stacey is such a trooper that you may not even know what she has been going through, even if you know her well. She works and functions whenever she can, and even when she should not.
She has tried the standard medications for Crohn's. The new one, which she is currently on, is essential but outrageously expensive. It is also imperative that she take some time away from work to absolutely rest and heal.
In order for both these to happen she needs financial assistance. Though extremely independent, Stacey has allowed her friends to set up assistance.
We know she is humbled and incredibly grateful to have loving friends. Let’s help Stacey heal. https://www.gofundme.com/staceyheals
