Brandi Chastain Raises Awareness for IBD
Brandi Chastain, former soccer star who played for the United States women’s national soccer team from 1988 to 2004, is raising awareness for a new site called IBDGamePlan.com. The site is full of helpful tools and resources for living a normal life with IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disease). The site has valuable information about Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis, gastrointestinal specialists in your area and guidelines to help you manage your condition.
When Brandi Chastain is passionate about a cause she steps up to the plate to give back. Earlier this year the Concussion Legacy Foundation announced that Brandi Chastain, will donate her brain to the foundation, whereupon it will be studied by researchers from the C.T.E. Center at Boston University, one of the foremost pioneers in the field.
It’s no surprise that when her son was diagnosed with Crohn’s last year, at the age of 9, that Brandi went above and beyond to raise awareness. “It’s crucial to have team support and a game plan” says Brandi.
