Letter from Rick Geswell, CCFA President

The new year brings a flood of resolutions. For many of us, the fresh beginning offers a chance to reset our approaches to food and health. For IBD patients, following through on those resolutions can be especially important – and especially difficult. At CCFA, one of our goals is to provide the tools to help you better manage your condition and strengthen your resolve.

Whatever your goals may be, we wish you a year filled with health and happiness!
A passionate advocate

Most of 26-year-old Kelsey Whitlock’s closest friends didn’t know she had ulcerative colitis until, at age 24, she had her entire colon surgically removed. For Kelsey, as for many IBD patients, her health problems were compounded by the fact that they were difficult to talk about.

But when Kelsey had the opportunity to testify at a Department of Justice hearing on the Americans with Disabilities Act last December, her commitment to raising awareness about the need for greater access to restrooms trumped her shyness.

New features on the CCFA community site

The right resources and support can make day-to-day life with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis easier. IBD patients and their families have come to rely on the CCFA community site for the support they need, to ask questions, and share tips. Now, we’ve added brand new features:

* The IBD Knowledge Navigator gives customized information based on your condition.
* The Ask the Expert Forum gives answers from our healthcare professionals.
* The Expert Q&A Library lets you search previous expert responses.

Honoring cutting-edge research

Last month, CCFA honored three leaders for their lifelong commitment to in the field of IBD research and treatment at its 2010 Advances in Inflammatory Bowel Diseases Clinical and Research Conference. Together, these doctors have authored hundreds of journal articles and
conducted decades of studies, all aimed at bringing us closer to a cure.

Support Research for Happier Lives

HEALTHY LIVING TIP

Did you know that high antioxidant juices like pomegranate, acai, and mangosteen are fabulous sources of nutrition and help prevent constipation? Learn more health tips at our Expert Q&A Library.

Start planning for Camp Oasis

Applications for CCFA’s co-ed residential summer camp, Camp Oasis, are now available!
Since all of the campers (and most of the adults) at Camp Oasis have IBD, our supportive community allows campers to build new friendships with people who understand them, gain confidence, and see that they are not alone – all with 24-hour medical care available.
