Sahara Fleetwood-Beresford

#IBDSuperHeroes founder, social manager & Facebook group admin

I'm an animal lover (I much prefer them to people), and am the proud mummy of four Chihuahuas.

I enjoy writing, reading, eating and of course, Netflix (standard).

I love live music and festivals but am not a big fan of the sun and booze.

I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis in 2007, lost my colon and now have a jpouch - it's complicated.

I am an avid fundraiser for a small UK charity, Cure Crohn's and Colitis and founder of #IBDSuperHeroes.

I won ITV's Pride of Britain 'fundraiser of the year' for my efforts in 2015.

I write because I enjoy it and find it a great release, and often to raise awareness of the things that matter to me.

Marketing in the digital world by day, raising awareness of IBD by night.
