Our Short Gut Journey

Empowered by Clara’s strength and determination, we’re sharing our story. From diagnosis to today, read our Short Gut journey from the beginning.

Everyone’s path is different, no-one is the same. We’re sharing our story to give hope that a diagnosis is not a definition of a child.

Every child has a chance to change the world.
