Ahwatukee resident Alyssa Rollando suffers from Crohn's disease. Alyssa is a swimmer, advocate and future biomedical engineer at Bucknell University in Lewisburg, PA where she plans to tackle new challenges including the University's Division One swim team. Alyssa has been awarded a $10,000 scholarship from the UCB Crohn's and Me Foundation.

Crohn's disease is a chronic, progressive, destructive disorder that causes inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract, most commonly at the end of the small intestine (the ileum) and beginning of the large intestine. If not effectively treated, it may result in the need for surgery and hospitalization.

Alyssa plans to use the scholarship to help fund her undergraduate studies at Bucknell University.
