That's So Chronic
Emily Spink & Crohn's Disease
Hi! Welcome to That’s So Chronic. Today I am chatting with Emily Spink all about Crohn’s Disease. Emily was diagnosed in 2014, and since then she has done some incredible things!
In this episode Emily talks us through her journey to a diagnosis, what it’s like to volunteer for Camp Purple - a camp for young people living with Inflammatory Bowel Disease run by Crohn’s and Colitis NZ, and she tells us all about her experience of a lifetime... Driving a rickshaw with two fellow Crohnies across the length of India raising money for Camp Purple.
I have always wanted to go to India but sometimes when you have a diagnosis of something it feels like you will never get to do fun things ever again. Talking to Emily made me realise that anything is possible.
