Happy Crohn's and Colitis Awareness Week. Most of you know way too much about Crohn's and Colitis. You know it sometimes can be a literal pain in the ass.
In case you don't know about Crohn's or you are new to it...the CCFA is the place to learn more. They have information, news, and resources.
Crohn's & Me is a great place to go if you are focussing on the pain in the ass part and need a bit of inspiration.It has all sorts of stories on people living and thriving with Crohn's disease. People with Crohn's and UC have guts for sure. They get up, they work, they raise families, they do amazing things every day.
Cures are in the works. Treatments get better all the time. But of course, all of that takes time, patience, and money. Awareness helps get that money. Because Crohn's and Colitis are digestive diseases...no one wants to talk about them. Your co-worker, friend, idol, or family member might have it and never talk about it. You might never talk about it. So, take a moment to talk about it. Talk to your lawmakers, grant foundations, friends and family.
