A fourteen-year-old girl who’s ready to change Crohn’s patients’ lives, one piece of art at a time.

Hi! I’m Johanna Lane, and I have Crohn’s disease, which made me very sick and malnourished for three years, despite my eating three meals every day. Little did I know, I was really just eating the wrong stuff. When I was diagnosed, I was put on a diet as a treatment even though most people are put on medicine for Crohn’s disease. The diet (called SCD) helped me get better right away. But the medicines people go on for Crohn’s can have terrible side effects (like psoriasis and immune deficiencies) and sometimes don’t even help patients like me at all. My goal is to sell my artwork and donate all proceeds to NIMBAL.org, an organization that raises awareness for diet as a treatment for Crohn’s disease, and lets people suffering know that they have a better option. Please buy something you like, and it will help spread the word about diet for Crohn’s. I am also in the process of creating a Save the Bees collection, of which half of the proceeds will go to saving the bees, and half to NIMBAL as well.
