Young sisters Morgan and Ariel Taylor have been through an awful amount. Crohn’s Disease and ulcerative colitis have taken its toll on the girls, with both of them having countless hospital admissions throughout their lives. The sisters both have endured endless blood transfusions and highly traumatic and life-threatening surgeries.
Morgan was finally diagnosed with Crohn's disease in 2009, spending ten weeks at Westmead Children's Hospital when she was just twelve years old. She underwent emergency surgery to remove a section of her small intestine. Ariel has been diagnosed with a severe form of Ulcerative Colitis in 2014. Both girls are currently in hospital facing incredibly complicated and traumatic surgeries with the help of many highly trained specialists. Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis are life-long gastrointestinal disorders that commonly present themselves in children and adolescents.
Australia has one of the highest prevalence of these diseases in the world and in the serious cases like the gorgeous Taylor sisters, it can lead to surgery, permanent colostomy bags and even death.
Morgan and Ariel are unable to receive any government support and cannot currently work. This page has been set up to help them both through the hardest time of their lives. It would mean so much to them and their family to have support and every donation is appreciated. Thank you so much.
