The El Paso Crohn’s & Autoimmune Fund was established by Carrie Wilkie to provide support to those affected with Chrohn’s and Autoimmune disease in the West Texas/ Southern New Mexico area. The goal is to educate the local community on the effects of these diseases and to improve the lives of all those affected by Crohn’s, colitis and other autoimmune diseases.
Crohn's disease is a type of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that affects as many as 700,000 people in the U.S. While the condition can occur at any age, it is more common among adolescents and young adults between the ages of 15 and 35. To learn more or donate to this fund, click on this link.
