Winston Wardlaw

Washington, District Of Columbia

Winston Wardlaw, 14, of Washington, D.C., a freshman at District of Columbia International School, has used his experience with ulcerative colitis to bring comfort and support to others with inflammatory bowel diseases, sharing his story with kids facing the same surgeries he’s had and raising nearly $12,000 for the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation. Winston was determined to help others benefit from the lessons he learned after three major surgeries, in hopes of helping them feel less alone.
