This is the Scott Slivka's Colitis fund. The funds will be used to pay medical costs and related expenses not covered by his insurance.

Scott is 35 years old, but has been fighting with stomach problems for the better part of his adult life. Over the past year he has done several test and procedures. Recently he was finally diagnosed with Colitis.
Colitis is a term used to describe inflammation of the colon. There are a variety of causes of colitis including infections, poor blood supply, and autoimmune reactions.
Symptoms of colitis will depend upon the type of colitis that is present, but in general, colitis most often is associated with:
Constant abdominal pain
Bleeding hemorrhoids.
Blood with a bowel movement.
Constant urge to have a bowel movement.
The abdominal pain may come in waves, building to diarrhea, and then waning.
Fever, chills, and other signs of infection and inflammation
He has to miss a tremendous amount of work and so this has left him with no sick days or vacation to cover, causing him to have tons of medical bills and related expenses.

If you have any questions, or suggestions or just need to contact a representative for Scotty please call Angella Carter at 847-212-8762 or e-mail at
