Inflammatory Bowel Disease. For those of us who live with it every day, it has a massive impact on who we are. It can reach deep into our soul (and gut!) and affects us both emotionally and mentally. Often times, these struggles can be challenging to convey to others.

Matthew Lee, an Ulcerative Colitis patient, portrays his life with UC through creative artwork. He has generously allowed us to share his colitis sketches below:

Thanks again to Matthew. We found his visual impressions of UC inspiring.
