At the IBD Support Foundation, our goal is to prevent IBD patients from ever feeling alone because of their disease. We know that illness can be isolating. People often don't understand what it is like to be a patient. We know that illness can be frightening and when we feel vulnerable, we need access to knowledgeable people who care. We know that illness impacts every relationship, with our families, with our friends, at work and at school. And we know that crises don't just occur during business hours, but often at night or on weekends or on holidays.
The IBD Support Foundation has been built by patients for patients, because it is patients who truly understand. We are available to patients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to help individuals through crises, to answer questions, and to make sure that no patient ever feels alone.
