Coleman Chickies

Our total team activity 474kms

About our “why?”

Lexi was diagnosed with Crohns Disease at 8 years old.
We had no idea what it meant, just that it was an autoimmune disease affecting her gut and she would need medication to treat it.
We have since discovered it’s a sneaky, insidious disease that has wreaked havoc on ‘our little treasure’ - physically and emotionally.
Countless blood tests, cannulas, scopes, X-rays, MRI’s, cat scans, infusions, ER visits and admissions.
Complications from treatments - anaphylactic reactions, hair loss, psoriasis so severe it required hospitalisation, compromised bone density causing osteoporosis and spinal and pelvic fractures. Over 25 weeks off school in the last 12 months. Lexi hasn’t walked independently since May.
Ironically, as I write this, we are currently in our 3rd week of our most recent admission.
We are so blessed to have an amazing medical and allied health team who support us - the best nurses, gastroenterologist, rheumatologist, dermatologist, spinal surgeon, endocrinologist, pain management team, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, psychology AND the most beautiful GP! They are ALL AWESOME!
In a few days time we are taking on the ‘Live Fearless Challenge’ for the month of September, walking each day until we reach 150kms (hopefully more) - we are super keen to raise awareness and some funds to put towards research and maybe a cure! We would love your support - Lexi would be so excited if she could raise $$$ for research. Also, if you would like to join us at any time during September on one of our daily walks - give me a shout!
Much love ? The Coleman Chickies (and Scotty) xxx?
