Ryan Nesbitt, a former AbbVie IBD Scholarship recipient, decided to make a documentary that gave a glimpse into what it's like to live with inflammatory bowel disease. He reached out to Jessica Grossman, the founder and spokesperson of Uncover Ostomy
, for her insight into being diagnosed at a young age, and growing up with a chronic disease.
Ryan and Jessica swap stories about their lives with Crohn's disease in Gutsy
, which is now available to watch and share on our YouTube channel
, as well as our Facebook page
Our thanks to Gutsy's co-producers, Ryan Nesbitt and Rebeca Ortiz, for bringing this film to life, and to Jessica Grossman for being so open about her story.
