    My friends fight with Crohns. Please take a minute to read this as I am very proud of my friend Daniel.
    My friend Daniel has been living with Crohns, this terrible disease for most of his life. It started around the age of 9/10 but unfortunately wasn't diagnosed until he was 16/17 years of age.
    Daniel fights against the disease every day of his life and tries to lead as normal a life as possible, but in reality he is dying inside and is almost constantly in some form of pain!
    He is the strongest person I know and refuses to give up. Daniel always puts on a brave face, smiles and says "I'm ok". His world is his two girls, Hannah, his wife and little Miss Isla Rose, his daughter. They mean the world to him and he will do anything for them!
    After years of treatments, infections, drugs, iron infusions, flare ups and countless hospital visits, Daniel collapsed at work three years ago. His bowel had collapsed and this necessitated immediate emergency surgery. After a nine hour operation, Daniel woke up in intensive care and spent a total of ten months in hospital. Consequently, he was unable to work for twelve months!
    This is why I would like your help, as during this length of time, which was a difficult period of time for the whole family, he wasn't entitled to any benefits whatsoever.
    Daniel has worked since leaving school and successfully runs his own business and done for over thirteen years. Whilst he was ill, an application was made for PIP (Personal Independent Payment) but he was unsuccessful in his application! In fact, every bit of advice or support we asked for fell on deaf ears!
    Just prior to Daniel collapsing, he had released some equity from his home to do some home improvements. Consequently, the only way that my son and his family got through was by spending that money to survive instead.
    Daniel has got many operations to come and faces a tough ride .. you all know me and know i would donate to help you so donate please to help me help my pal
