It’s time to make it stop.
Canadians have more reasons to be concerned about Crohn’s and colitis than anyone else in the world. 1 in every 150 Canadians has Crohn’s or colitis and rates are rising for all ages.
Crohn’s and colitis are lifelong diseases. There are no cures.
It means pain, urgent bathroom visits, hospital stays, surgeries and an increased risk of cancer. It affects school, work and relationships. For young children, the diseases tend to be more aggressive.
These are just some of the reasons we’ve launched the Crohn’s & Colitis – Make it stop. For life. campaign.
We need your help to make it stop.
Crohn’s and Colitis Canada has a bold vision for the future. The Crohn’s & Colitis - Make it stop. For life. campaign will raise $100 million & transform lives.
Through the Make it stop. For life. campaign, we will invest in research, education, advocacy and awareness so that every child and adult in Canada can live their life to the fullest.
We want to transform the face of Crohn’s and colitis in Canada.
One year into our 7-year campaign, we are already at 20% of our goal.
But there is still much to do and we need your help. There are many ways that you can help us make it stop: from setting up monthly giving in an amount that is reasonable for you; making a multi-year pledge to support the campaign; participating in an event; volunteering; or helping raise awareness. Find your way to make it stop. For life.
Crohn’s and Colitis Canada is the organization to stop these diseases.
We build research partnerships and sustain scientific progress while ensuring that the most promising, relevant research gets funded. It’s time.
We are working hard to ease the impact of Crohn’s and colitis through education and advocacy. Our new awareness campaign “Behind Closed Doors” lifts the stigma and ends the isolation of life with Crohn’s and colitis.
We are uniquely positioned to stop these diseases. Crohn’s and Colitis Canada is at the core of inflammatory bowel disease research in Canada. Our funding builds research collaborations and sustains scientific progress while we ensure that the most promising, relevant research gets funded. We further the development of new and better treatments and lay the groundwork for the cures by connecting critical researchers, universities, hospitals and the biomedical industry.
With each passing year, we know more about these diseases than we ever did before. The time is now: the scientific breakthroughs in genetics, gut microbes, inflammation and cell repair are promising new and better treatments.
Without your help, these exciting new pathways will be left unexplored. We need your support to invest in the transformational research that will deliver meaningful results. By investing in research from bench to bedside, we will accelerate and maximize the impact we have on the lives of children living with Crohn’s and colitis. By providing education, advocacy and awareness we will end the isolation so many people with Crohn’s and colitis face, and build a community of support for the future.
