In 2008, Brad Bennett was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. This was after many months of going to different doctors trying to figure out what was going on. Because of UC Brad has lost the majority of his colon, and will struggle with complications from this disease for the rest of his life.
So in 2010, Brad decided to start the Ulcerative Colitis Foundation of America to help raise awareness about UC. But UC is not the only thing this foundation is focused on. UCFA was created to raise awareness about UC, Crohn's, and Colorectal Cancer (the second deadliest cancer behind lung cancer).
This campaign is twofold. First, we want to raise awareness about the Ulcerative Colitis Foundation of America. The more we grow the more we will be able to get information out, and hopefully one day find a cure. Second, we want to raise money so that we may be able to give college scholarships to those who have been effected by UC. Right now UCFA only gives two $500 scholarships a year, but with your help we could be able to help out so many more.
