UPDATE: Celebrating UC Success Announces Essay Contest Winners
Date:5/12/2008

is battle with UC as a

teenager in college and it was during this difficult time that he

gained a great respect for the doctors who cared for him. Now, Shervin

is in his final year of medical school. He hopes that as a physician

with UC, he will be able to better relate to his patients and use his

story to motivate, inspire and encourage others with UC.

Family/Friend Winner

-- Tracy Habenicht, is a copy editor from Plainfield, Ill. who was

inspired by her close friend Keith Means, when he was recently

diagnosed with UC this past year. Tracy was surprised at how Keith, a

typical "twenty-something" guy, took responsibility by learning about

his disease, changing his diet and emotionally dealt with his illness

by confiding in her. To her, Keith is a testament to how small changes

can mean big success.

Healthcare Provider Winner

-- Robert Brown, is a pharmacist from Cambria, Calif. who consulted with

Rachel numerous times as she worked to improve her daily lifestyle with

UC. As a young woman, her condition was severely affecting her social

life, but he was impressed by how quickly she was able to get her

condition under control with medication and support.

"More than half a million Americans live with ulcerative colitis each day and the response to the Celebrating UC Success contest program from the community underscores the importance of an open dialogue among those affected by the disease," said Kimberly Frederick, Vice President of Patient & Professional Services for the Foundation. "We look forward to honoring the winners and to an exciting event in Washington, D.C."
