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 recently represented selected Australia as Team Captain in the 2017 ISA World Surfing Games in Biarritz, France.
Unfortunately, the trip to France was self-funded…and with ongoing medical expenses, Brittani is still trying to cover costs.
By donating, your contribution will enable Brittani to spend time focussing on exactly what she needs to do to regain her health and live the life she loves!
- Your contribution will not only assist with insurance, flights, accomodation, car hire and equipment expenses involved with her travels…but also the medical expenses associated with ongoing treatment with the Professor in Sydney, as well as other consultations to improve Brittani’s health.
- The Australian Sports Foundation’s new Athlete Fundraising Program will allow you to make a TAX DEDUCTIBLE donation, as all donations over $2 via the donate button below are tax deductible.
You can also follow Brittani’s personal journey online via Facebook and Instagram.
She hopes to inspire you to follow your own heart and to create a life that you want, no matter what obstacles may pop up along the way.
