Ever since I started advocating for Inflammatory Bowel Disease and doing interviews to help spread education and awareness around IBD, I’ve always wanted to interview Sara Ringer. Sara was one of the first people I found on the internet, specifically her YouTube videos, that helped me. It was through her advocacy that I learned so much about Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis. This interview was a huge honor for me and I’m glad I get to work with Sara on a monthly basis doing The IBD Round Table Discussion.
As the YouTube description says above, we get an up close and personal look at Sara Ringer. We learn about her early childhood and how dance was extremely special to her. We talk about the teen years and how her dream was to be a school teacher. Sara talks about what lead up to having her colon and large intestine removed, getting a J-Pouch, and then finding out that the original IBD diagnosis of Ulcerative Colitis was wrong and it was really Crohn’s Disease. Sara also takes our live audiences questions and comments and answers them live.
