The LoveLaila Foundation in its short existence has helped raise thousands of $$  in support of finding a cure for Crohn's Disease & Ulcerative Colitis.


About Us


 The LoveLaila Foundation is 

driven by a single goal; to do our part in making the world a better place for everyone battling inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), the two most common forms being Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis (UC). Our quest is to make the lack of support and information  about IBD less of a challenge for those struggling from it. 

Lauren Laila Townsend: Our angel, our motivation to fight for a cure!


The LoveLaila Foundation, Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization founded in memory of Lauren Laila Townsend, who lost her fight against Crohn's disease at age 26,  in 2014.  Having recently completed an undergraduate degree in pre-nursing studies, Lauren was pursuing admission into a graduate nursing program that would better enable her to aid others with gastrointestinal challenges. Unfortunately, Lauren succumbed before this quest could be completed.


With this same dedication and caring, Lauren's mother, Sharifa, has sought to carry on in Lauren's memory the raising of money for crucial research to bring us closer to a future free from Crohn's disease and Colitis.
