I'm participating in the Seattle Take Steps walk (organized by the CCFA to raise $ for research) next weekend, and I FINALLY got my fundraising email sent out yesterday.  I just kept forgetting to do it (shame on me!).  Anyway, I set a goal of $500 and donated $50 myself.  So far, people have donated $525, and I've been really surprised and touched at how much some people have given.  I'm just feeling very loved right now! :)

That's great! You must be a very special person to get that kind of support so quickly. Thank you for your efforts.

Thanks, everyone! Judy, I think it's more because I've got such great family and friends! :)

Sunshine, the walk is at Magnuson Park at 4pm on Saturday. Here's a link:

Good job. That's really awesome. :-)
22 years old

Diagnosed with moderate/severe UC June 2007, I've had it since December 2006.

Taking Lialda 3x a day<---NOT ANYMORE. I got pancreatitis from them.
I stopped taking Lialda 8-19-08. Ugh!
All I take now is just my 3 Entocort in the morning, and 1 iron pill in the afternoon.

NOW back on Lialda as of 8-30-08, not the cause of pancreatitis.
Going in for an endoscopic ultrasound on 9-19-08 to check things out.
Still on Entocort and iron. Yay...

Haven't been on here in a while (finally graduated college).
Update as of 5/26/09 - Now taking Imuran 100mg/day.
Taking Caltrate, Iron, and B12. I still take one Lialda a day.. Don't know why..
Something is giving me horrible headaches. =[ At least I'm off the Entocort.

Thanks, again, everyone. As of this morning, I'm up to $960! I'm just blown away by the support.

lovemyboys09, you should check out the page and see about coming anyway. I'm sure if you just can come regardless of donations, etc!
