Hi, I'm Gabriella DeMartino,

and many of you may know me from www youtube.com/nikiandgabibeauty. Throughout the past year I've been receiving lots of questions about tips, tricks, or ways to lose weight like I did. Further, I’ve been receiving accusations such as “Bulimia” and “Anorexia Nervosa.”  Although I have struggled with those in the past,  that isn’t exactly the case this time around. Those past eating disorders brought on more than I was prepared for.  I have permanently damaged my body, resulting in myself suffering from two major diseases. All in all, I have lost a total of 12 pounds and this is due to my battle with Ulcerative Colitis along with Celiac Disease (both diseases within the colon).

Several summers ago (2013), I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease after undergoing a colonoscopy, and because it was difficult for me to follow the dietary restrictions for this disease, Ulcerative Colitis slowly but surely crept up on my colon as well. Ulcerative Colitis is a chronic, inflammatory bowel disease that causes inflammation in the digestive tract. Ulcerative colitis shares much in common with Crohn's disease <http //en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crohn's_disease> , another form of IBD.

Many Crohns, Colitis, and IBD sufferers have to face the reality of Colon Cancer risks increasing for us by more than 50%.  My idol, Audrey Hepburn, suffered starvation as a teenager in the Nazi-occupied Netherland.  Her starvation and unusual eating patterns lead her to suffer from Colitis in her colon as well. Consequentially and very very unfortunately, Audrey suffered the death of a cancerous colon. I look up to her not only because she is my style icon and all time favorite actress, but because her strength throughout the disease and her career are more than admirable. I look at her and think to myself, “If she could do it, I can do it.”  Not only is May 5 my birthday, but May 4 is her birthday.  This campaign is for us- Audrey and me.  Not only do I want to bring awareness to this horrifying and victimizing disease, but I would love to raise money for more research and medicine.

Thank you,

.

I'm so happy that you are doing this it is so sweet and kind. I'm happy that someone found goodness in their heart in the society today to do this.

NachoBirthday 05,May 2015

Happy birthday gab... This is so sweet. You are one of the most beautiful kind and caring people i know. Your story along with Audrey's is so heart touching. I am so glade you shared your story and are raising awareness. You are giving so much for you birthday yet you don't get nearly as much as you deserve. If Audrey could see you right now... Well she would be oh so proud to people like you follow in her foot steps making a change in the world. I know this might seem like just another long comment but every thing I said is oh so true. Audrey should not be your inspiration but you should be hers along with the inspiration of all your fans. I hope you and Niki have an amazing birthday and that you reach your goal. Happy birthday lots of love~ IG justdemarthings
