Erica’s Story: How Camp Oasis Changed My Life with IBD

We’re thrilled to feature Erica, a young teen who bravely shares her patient journey on this episode. Erica was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease when she was 7 years old, and she along with her Mom, Nicole, share some real-life insights from the family perspective when a child is living with a chronic digestive health condition. Erica also shares her personal experience at Camp Oasis, a summer sleep-away camp developed by The Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation for children diagnosed with IBD. She explains how much Camp Oasis has made a positive impact on her life and why other kids with IBD should attend. To learn more about Camp Oasis, tune in to our previous episode with Becky Johnson Rescola, the Vice President of Education & Community Engagement at the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation, as well as Pediatric Gastroenterologist Dr. Steven Steiner, who is the Medical Director of Camp Oasis in Michigan.
