Local teenager doesn't let Crohn's disease slow him down


To look at 14-year-old Preston Wing, one would never know that he has a chronic illness.

Wing lives with his parents, Brent and Toni, and his twin brothers in the Troy Burne subdivision just south of Hudson. He is in the eighth grade at Meyer Middle School and he has Crohn's disease.

When asked what Crohn's disease is, Wing said he uses the description his doctors gave him when he was first diagnosed two and a half years ago.
