Welcome! If you’re new here, my name is Johanna Lane. I have Crohn’s disease, a disease that, in my case, gave me terrible stomach aches and made me stop growing for three years. But as treatment, I’ve started the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, or SCD, and I’m now growing a lot and I feel fine. The diet I’m on has been proven to help 80% of patients feel better again, a lot better than most regular medicines for Crohn’s can do.
But I’m a lucky case. This diet is really new, and most people either don’t know about it or don’t believe that it works. So, in order to help more kids like me feel happy and healthy again, I want to raise money for NIMBAL, an organization run by Children’s Hospital of Seattle that raises awareness for the SCD and shows people that it really does work.
The diet removes all sugar, grains, and lactose from my meals, so it’s hard to eat like everybody else. So, in April, I drew a lot of different types of food that I miss. This month, I’m drawing the tons of amazing foods I’m still able to eat (mainly fruits and vegetables).
So, what I want to do is sell my drawings, and then give 90% of the proceeds to NIMBAL and help people with Crohn’s disease learn about the SCD diet.
I’d definitely appreciate it if you could help me out with that!
