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.

Health & Wellness

Cancer screening is testing a group of people in the population for signs of cancer in order to find it in the early stages, before it causes symptoms. Early detection is key to successful treatment.
Screening tests are offered to people who may have an increased risk of a particular cancer because of their age, sex or other factors.
In Australia we routinely screen for three types of cancer: bowel, cervical and breast.
If you have received a reminder for cancer screening, no matter how long ago you received it, make your appointment today.

Stav’s weeks are consumed by working on Kiana, days working as a hospital pharmacist, driving the boys to tennis, swimming, tae kwan do, Greek school and other activities, and trying to carve out some time to herself with tennis lessons and walks on the beach.
On motherhood, Stav says,
“I’m incredibly grateful to be working in a fulfilling job around the needs of my children. It really is a privilege to be able to do both.”
