party on the porch

Party on the Porch = fun party for a good cause! Hello, my name is Jenna and I have Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis. I also have amazing support from my friends and family, and that is why I am who I am today suffering from these diseases. Sorry to get personal … but this is very close to my heart …

Every year, I plan to host a party with my good friends Amanda and Lee for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America. Even writing this short post, I am getting teary eyed with emotion. It is still very hard for me to accept, live with, and suffer with. 1 out of 10 people with Crohn’s and/or Colitis will be diagnosed with Colon Cancer – which is why I am making an effort to be active in finding a cure – not only for me, but for all the children and other adults suffering from these obscure, mysterious diseases. This event is a way to get beloved friends and family together, but more importantly, we are trying to raise awareness (and hopefully a cure in the future) for these awful Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD). Thanks to everyone’s support for the party this year: Fleur de Lis (a paperie), Raw Perspective Photography (Kristopher Lewis), Justin Donovan Band, The Ruffly Rose, 3o3 Magazine, Denise Plante, and all our friends and family who came out to support this special cause … THANK YOU! I look forward to next year’s Party on the Porch 🙂

Please contact Jenna at Fleur de Lis for more information on donating, sponsorship opportunities for 2012, and more information on the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America and Crohn’s and Colitis Diseases. Thanks to all our loved ones for attending this year, and wearing your white … we hope to see you next year!
