Maretsky's Story

Jim and Leah were soon to be married when Jim had a Colitis flareup. Leah, who was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease when she was 13 years old, understood his discomfort and turned to the experts at UPMC Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center for help. 

Jim explained that upon first meeting with the group at UPMC, he “switched medications and reached a point where things started getting better, which helped to build an immediate bond.” The results were similar for Leah, who explained that “in our moment of crisis, the doctor and his team ended up finding a great band aid to get us through, mending us to the next level of health.”
