Yesterday, I was fortunate to participate in Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) “Take Steps” walk with a big contingent of our team. A shout out to Melissa Sheffer who was honored as Adult Volunteer of the year and to Jacqueline Akin who was honored as a pediatric hero.
Melissa along with Dr. Larry Saripkin (not pictured but also at event/walk) have been the crucial volunteers to run Camp Oasis for the last 14 years. Jacqueline said in her speech that she is followed by our team and also described some of the issues she has faced in trying to manage Crohn’s disease.
Also, I want to thank Jacob Schoeff and Dr. Dinesh Patel for team leadership and organizing our participation. Great work!
For those so inclined, it’s not too late to donate to our CCFA team: CCFA Super Poopers Donation Link
