Getting Closer to Her Family Through Crohn's

Being connected to other people living with Crohn's is important to Kim Goode. She didn't know a single person with Crohn's when she was diagnosed. But that's all changed now. Kim turns to the Crohn's community for support-and to give back to those who've helped her so much.

About Kim

Being supportive just seems to come naturally for Kim, a single mother of 3 who also holds two jobs. Kim's children are old enough to understand her condition, and although they're understandably concerned for their mother, seeing the lighter side of life with Crohn's disease has also helped bring them closer as a family.

What's more, sharing her story and bringing people other people with Crohn's together help Kim feel good about her life. "I felt like I was all alone, even though I knew I wasn't," Kim says, "and I don't want anyone else to have to feel that way."
