You see they say it’s genetic and it’s in the family. But all the people I’ve spoken to don’t have it in the family. It’s just the one child. So I don’t know where genetics comes into it. But I can see there are definitely a higher proportion of patients, children or adults with Crohn’s in the Jewish community than there are outside it.
When we were in the hospital for surgery, I was friendly with another mother whose child was going to have the same surgery, she said she was in a school with 400 children and this child was the only one with Crohn’s. But in our schools [laughs] there are quite a few. So it’s very strange. She didn’t know anyone else with Crohn’s. Whereas I can list them one after the other so there must be something there. I don’t know what.
