Guts and Valentines?

I learned this week that the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) was founded in part  based on a love story:

From CCFA: Irwin M. Rosenthal, one of the visionary co–founders of CCFA, and Suzanne were due to be married in a few months time when suddenly Suzanne became very ill. Motivated by her struggle with Crohn’s disease, Irwin, along with William and Shelby Modell, and Dr. Henry D. Janowitz, established the Foundation for Research in Ileitis, now known as the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America.
