Her body ravaged by ulcerative colitis, Ali’s doctors warned her that conceiving and carrying a child would be difficult. Her decision to have a colectomy changed her life and ultimately helped her bring new life into the world.

Ali Lambert Voron’s heart was telling her it was time for a baby. But would her body cooperate?

Diagnosed with ulcerative colitis (UC) in her mid-twenties, Ali didn’t realize the disease could be so devastating. Prescription medication, Asacol, initially lead to remission. “It was like, ‘I have colitis, and it doesn’t affect me,’ ” she remembered thinking.

Ali went about the business of living life. Dealing with a disease was nothing new to her — she also has alopecia, an autoimmune disease that caused her to lose her hair when she was 16 years old. “A huge part of my life has been that I don’t have hair and I don’t wear a wig,” she said. “Alopecia is totally a cosmetic thing. In no way has it hurt me or caused me a single bit of pain. But the second anyone sees me, every day of my life, they know ‘ooh, something is up with that girl.’ With colitis nobody would ever know I have it, but it has singed me to my core.”

Although ulcerative colitis can appear at any age, it usually happens to younger people, often between the ages of 15 and 30 — a time in your life when you don’t expect to have a serious health problem. That was the case with Adam Scheuer, whose relatives had assorted stomach problems, so when he experienced discomfort, he considered it just a part of life. Then he started noticing blood in his stool.
