A little bit about me..
My name is Mylah and Im 8 years old. I have a puppy and live near the beach. Im a pretty normal kid who likes reading, art, music and playing with friends.

At age 7, after a year long struggle with deteriorating health with countless trips to the doctor and several extended stays in hospital…Mylah was transferred to B.C Childrens Hospital. Once there, she underwent countless tests and was diagnosed with IBD; Crohn’s Disease. While in hospital Mylah stated creating this short video to share her story. She hopes you can watch it and maybe understand a little bit what its like to have Crohn’s, but more importantly, that you will see that Crohn’s Cant Stop Her!!
What is IBD?
1 in 140 Canadians live with Crohn’s or colitis.
Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are diseases that inflame the lining of the GI (gastrointestinal) tract and disrupt your body’s ability to digest food, absorb nutrition, and eliminate waste in a healthy manner.
As a result, you might have any of the following symptoms: abdominal pain, cramping, gas, bloating, fatigue, diarrhea (possibly bloody) and loss of appetite.
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) describes a group of conditions, the two main forms of which are Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. IBD also includes indeterminate colitis.
