Ulcerative Colitis

After having a flair up, I found out a couple of weeks ago that my niece was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. So far, she has not made out as well as I have.

The majority of her large intestine was removed at Children's Hospital in Boston. She's home now with significant weight loss and hopefully only a temporary bag. She's only 22 and this is devastating for any young person with a full life ahead.

Any and all prayers are welcome.

It's not fair, !! I'm angry, sad ... hopeful...
