The LoveLaila Foundation in its short existence has helped raise thousands of $$ in support of finding a cure for Crohn's Disease & Ulcerative Colitis.
The Love Laila 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 Love Laila 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 the age of 26, in 2014. Lauren, having recently completed an undergraduate degree in pre-nursing studies, was pursuing admission into a graduate nursing program that would better enable her to aid others with gastrointestinal challenges. Unfortunately, Lauren succumbed before this initiative could be completed.
It is with this same dedication and caring that 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.
