MAY IS CROHN’S & COLITIS AWARENESS MONTH12-05-2021
GET INVOLVED THIS MAY TO HELP US #FLUSHTHESTIGMA
It takes guts to talk about inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and this May Crohn’s & Colitis Australia (CCA) will be raising awareness in support of people living with these lifelong illnesses.
This May is a chance for Australians to understand a little more about what it is like to live with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, collectively known as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Many people living with these illnesses stay silent about the day-to-day issues they face but during May, we can help them speak up.
By as early as next year, there is expected to be over 100,000 Australians living with Crohn’s or colitis – lifelong, incurable conditions that are on the increase. For every person diagnosed, not only are their lives changed forever but also the lives of their family and friends.
