Crohn's Disease and Irritable Bowel Sydrome
Caleb Parrish

Caleb started seeing Dr. Brasfield in 1998. He was 2 years old. He was diagnosed with Active Airway Disease. We were told that he would not live past seven years old. He had to see Dr. Saeed in GI. Caleb was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease and Irritable Bowel Sydrome. We were told last month when we took Caleb to Birmingham that there was nothing more that could be done. Caleb has outlived the original time. He is 10 years old. Caleb is a happy-go-lucky little boy. He has always fought and he says he will continue to fight for his life. Children's Hospital has helped Caleb and our family. They have never given up on him or us. Every visit the doctors have came up with new things and it is amazing just how much love and devotion they show each and every child.
