Amy was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis a form of Inflammatory Bowel Disease from the age of 11. As Amy’s younger sister I feel it is vital I help to continue raising awareness of the risks like Cancer that Ulcerative Colitis sufferers face. I have also told my side of this journey through my booklet called ‘Living on the other side of Ulcerative Colitis’. With the support, help and knowledge of others we can begin to prevent this happening to another young male or female and save someone’s life.
