I'm doing the walk, but unfortunately I'm from Oregon.  I'm very excited that I have the time and the energy to do the walk.  I know June is a little far away to be thinking about the state of my body, but I know I can do it!  Have fun in Ohio :-)
Diagnosed with CD in '89
2 resections, B12 anemia, blood transfusion
Medication: Pentasa

Hey FinalMacGyver! I'm about 30 min. south of Cleveland! I'd be very interested in getting more info on this Crohn's Walk at Jacob's Field. It's awesome that we live in the same area and can swap some local events.
26 year old female  diagnosed with severe Crohn's in Sept. 2007-suspected that I've had it for at least 3 yrs; diagnosed with anemia Aug. 2007. Currently taking Pentasa 500mg/8x daily; Entocort 3mg/3x daily; Percocet/Ultram for pain; Protonix 40mg---was on Flagyl/Cipro for two weeks,(a few weeks ago), was supposed to be on it for three weeks but the cramping and diarrhea it caused made me stop
Now on Prednisone 40mg, stopped Entocort while on pred.
Ferrous Sulfate 325mg/daily for anemia

I am also doing the walk. I live in Indiana and the walk is taking place in Indianapolis (Home of the Colts! Sorry- couldn't resist)! I am looking for more people to be on my team. I think that so many other diseases get more recognition and not enough support from the community. This is a great opprotunity to get the word out and get some support. If anyone wants to be on my team I would be so happy. Feel free to email me or just respond to this post.

I would love to join the walk but I'm from central FL. Does anyone know how I can find out if there is a walk in my area? Thank you!
