Sara Ringer

My name is Sara and I don’t have a large intestine, but I DO have a large amount of passion for spreading awareness and accurate information about Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.

Me? I’m a sassy (more-like silly), classy, female living life with Crohn’s disease, intestinal dysmotility, and a j-pouch. That’s right, I don’t have a colon. No colon, no problem is what I always say. Actually I don’t. I’ve never said that before in my life, but it sounds fun! I’ve made it my life to help other patients living with IBD, so if you’re one of them consider me your newest friend. I have a ton of videos and blogs for you to check out about Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.

It is my goal to teach and inspire you, be your voice when you have none, and make sure you don’t feel alone. I educate you (and the world) about Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis (IBD) all day, every day.
