About Molly

Molly was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in 2012. Her symptoms at diagnosis were; abdominal spasms, diarrhoea, bloody stool, mucus in stool, abdominal pain, abdominal and rectal cramping, fatigue, gas, urgency, and frequent bowel movements. Molly was devastated when told ulcerative colitis could not be cured, but now uses her own experiences of living with a chronic illness to help raise awareness and advocate for IBD education and cultivate an IBD community.
