Crohn’s & Colitis Awareness Week
1-7 December 2016 was Crohn’s and Colitis Awareness Week!
Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis are often viewed as ‘invisible illnesses’. It was our mission this Awareness Week to increase understanding of Crohn’s and Colitis and ensure the true impact of these debilitating conditions is visible. Thank you to everyone who supported us on social media, by holding events in your community and, of course, going purple!
