"When my Crohn's is under control, it's the best time of my life," says Nancy Kennedy, a 47-year-old nurse and mother of three, who has been treated for Crohn's disease for nearly 30 years. Kennedy is one of an estimated 1.5 million Americans who suffer from inflammatory bowel disease. Receiving a diagnosis just six months after the birth of her first child, Nicole, Kennedy never dreamed that the baby she held in her arms would one day face the very same challenges.

I must admit that by the end of October I felt inundated by pink. I'll also admit that all the pink might have made me a bit grouchy.

I'm sure by now you've heard about the U.S. Task Force's new standards for breast cancer screening.
