Hello world my name is Evan and I live in Sacramento California. I am 12 years old. On Monday 10/3 I was diagnosed with Crohn's. Before I was diagnosed I planned on playing football for the Jr. Eagles but during the time my joints were killing me so I made the decision to not play. I was so upset to not play because I love playing football, but now that I know what is wrong, I can fight it off. I have just started prednisone and hope it makes me feel much better.
