Sam Faiers is a TV personality, diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease in 2014, aged 23.
Sam has supported our annual WALK IT events, as well as promoting World IBD Day.
Being diagnosed with Crohn’s completely changed my life. The condition has caused me agonising pain, changed my body and altered my lifestyle. That said, whilst it’s been a rough journey, it’s also made me take stock, especially with the arrival of baby Paul. I am now really focused on my diet and health and understand that feeling ‘well’ is one of the most important things for me and my family. I’m managing my condition well at the moment, but it’s an ongoing battle that I will live with forever. I wanted to celebrate the launch of WALK IT for Crohn’s & Colitis UK to help further awareness, and raise vital funds to help those living with IBD.
