Hi my name is Emma I am 13 years old. I have been diagnosed with Crohns Disease, severe and uncontrolled, resistant to all treatments. I had to have emergency open heart surgery do to complications from the implanted port. My mom is a single parent who had to take a leave of absence due to my condition. I want to thank the Mitchell Thorp Foundation for helping my mom pay off some medical bills. Thank you for your continued support for me soon I will be thriving and living life to the fullest.
