Girl Suffering From Horrible Crohn's Disease Bares All For A Shocking Reason

Crohn's and ulcerative colitis is one of the inflammatory bowel diseases that have attacked a huge population of America, (1.4 million to be precise) given the imbalanced diet habits, especially of teenagers. The Chron's disease affects the lining of the digestive tract, leading to rectal bleeding, persistent diarrhea, and abdominal pain. 

Heather Grant, a 23-year-old from St. Helens, Merseyside was struck with the horrible disease in July 2015, which hit the climax of pain in December. She had to undergo an operation to remove a part of her bowel, and a colostomy bag was attached to her body, which everyone suffering from the Crohn's disease considers extremely embarrassing. But then she decided to do something that would change people's perception towards the results of the surgery.
