A Special Message and “Ask” From
Sally Shapiro-Gould (Past NW Chamber Pres)
Please help me reach my personal goal of $5,000 for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation. This year, I will once again be participating in Take Steps Maryland.
My younger son, Marc, was diagnosed at age 13 with Crohn’s disease. As any parent knows, seeing your child suffer and knowing you can’t make it better, is devastating. In spite of high hurdles and difficult years, we are fortunate. Marc, now 34, is doing very well. In his own words:
“I’d like to think I’m living proof that you can live with IBD and not let it control your life. I’ve played music semi-professionally since college, I’ve produced a music festival, I’ve had an illustrious journalism career, I’ve hiked in numerous national parks, and I’ve traveled all over the world. I’m not trying to brag, but to hopefully inspire others who may be feeling like there are forces working against them as I felt in the past. You can achieve your goals and you can live a fulfilling life.”
My goal is to help find a cure for all forms of IBD. I hope you will join me on this journey.- Sally Shapiro-Gould
Please walk with me, donate and help spread the word.
Taking Steps for a future free from Crohn’s and colitis!

I’m so thankful for all the engaged residents we have in the 2nd District of Baltimore County, and it is truly a pleasure and privilege to serve you all each and every day. Serving as your council member on the Baltimore County Council is a responsibility I do not take lightly.

We appreciated you sharing your thoughts, ideas and concerns. We are going to continue working hard for you in an open, transparent, accessible and responsive manner.
