Katie, a fellow (former) UC sufferer and “pouchie”, has organized a concert fundraiser on August 14 to support the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America. If you live in the New York area, you should check it out. If you don’t live in NY but want to support this great cause, you can still make a monetary contribution here (100% of your tax-deductible gift goes to the CCFA). Thanks in advance!
CCFA is a non-profit, volunteer-driven organization dedicated to finding the cure for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. CCFA funds cutting-edge studies at major medical institutions, nurtures investigators at the early stages of their careers, and finances underdeveloped areas of research. The highly successful J-Pouch surgery is a direct product of such efforts, and—with any hope—even better treatment options will be developed through further research.
