IBD impacts the whole family, not just the patient. At IBDSF, we recognize the importance of strengthening the family unit while addressing the psychological, social, and emotional needs of each patient.
On October 7th, Hamas, a terrorist organization carried out a horrendous attack against innocent civilians in Israel. Over 1400 people were murdered and approximately 250 children and adults were kidnapped and taken hostage. The attack has been followed by tremendous civil unrest and a significant rise in anti-semitism across the country and around the world.
IBDSF grieves for all of the families that have been devastated by loss and wants to support patients who have been impacted directly or indirectly by what is going on in Israel and around the world.
We know that stress and fear can impact disease progression and IBDSF would like to support IBD patients and their families during this time.
