Diagnosed at age 19, and having lived with Crohn’s Disease my entire life, I know first hand the challenges and courage it takes to face every day with this incurable disease. From several surgeries to now spending every six weeks receiving infusion treatments so I can live a “normal” life, I take solace in helping others with the disease.
I am actively involved in the North Texas Chapter of CCFA, where I am a past board member and past Corporate Spokesperson, but my true energy and passion, however, goes into Camp Oasis. Camp Oasis is camp held every summer for children from ages 6 to 18 battling Crohn’s and Colitis, where I volunteer as a camp counselor every year to give back and help kids understand how to live a life with the disease and come out stronger and richer for having lived through the challenges faced every day with Crohn’s or Colitis. Like most camps for disabled children, Camp Oasis is funded through donations, and families are not asked to pay for their children’s camp costs so they can focus on paying for their children’s medical costs.
For every $5.00 you donate to the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA), The Trocchio Advantage LLC will give $1.00 toward a camper being able to attend Camp Oasis.
Help The Trocchio Advantage LLC send more kids to Camp Oasis so they, too, can begin to live a “normal” life.
