Australian Surfer – Crohn’s & Colitis Ambassador

Make the most of every minute, every hour and every day…count your blessings.

Brittani was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease when she was seven years old, and although her journey since has had some obstacles, Brittani has never given up on living her life to the fullest. Brittani grew up on the surf haven Tweed Coast of Australia and began surfing when she was twelve years old – and she has never looked back.

In 2011 Brittani became a National Ambassador for Crohn’s & Colitis Australia and has since shared her story at various charity events, luncheons, youth camps, and Parliament House. Brittani is currently one of the faces of a National Ad Campaign run by Crohn’s & Colitis Australia, #LiveFearless, aimed at creating awareness and encouraging other patients to live fearlessly throughout their journey. Brittani hopes to create awareness by giving people a better understanding of how this disease can effect anyone, while also inspiring those who may be going through difficult times.

Brittani travels all over the globe to compete in surfing events, all while spreading awareness of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Brittani has recently been selected to represent Australia as Team Captain in the 2017 ISA World Surfing Games held in Biarritz, France.

Unfortunately the trip to France is self-funded, though you may be able to help contribute to Brittani’s journey by donating and showing your support!

  • Your contribution will not only assist with insurance, flights, accomodation, car hire and equipment…but also the medical expenses associated with ongoing treatment with the Professor in Sydney, as well as other consultations to improve Brittani’s health.
  • I have partnered with the Australian Sports Foundation’s new Athlete Fundraising Program – meaning, donations over $2 via the donate button below are TAX DEDUCTIBLE.
  • Your contributions will be much appreciated and will enable Brittani to focus on exactly what she needs to do to regain her health and perform her best both in and out of the water.
