Rachel Callaghan

Rachel Callaghan

Name: Rachel Callaghan
Age: 21
Year of the Fix: 2016
Location: Galashiels, Scottish Borders
Campaign: To educate people about Crohn’s disease

I have Crohn's disease, which is an inflammation of the digestive system. 

 

I was about 13 years old and I started getting quite a lot of stomach pains.

 

When I was first diagnosed, it was hard to talk to people about it, because it’s quite a taboo subject.

 

I’m working with Fixers to help young people understand more about Crohn's disease and show that it’s nothing to feel embarrassed about.

 

I hope my campaign gives people a better understanding of this illness and what it's like to live with.

I would like to thank Meghan Callaghan for helping me with this Fix.
