The Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation has been at the forefront of inflammatory bowel disease research and care for more than 50 years and counting. We invest in IBD research, education, support, and advocacy initiatives.
Our patient-support programs have also grown exponentially:
In-person, live support programs grew by 168 percent in 2018, while online support groups grew by 109 percent. Overall, we reach more than 250,000 people each year through our support programs.
Over 1,100 campers annually attend Camp Oasis, our summer camp for kids with Crohn’s and colitis with 12 sites across the country. Last year, almost 100 percent of the campers, parents, and staff reported that camp had a positive impact on their lives, and 60 percent called Camp Oasis “life changing.”
We respond to approximately 12,000 patient and caregiver inquiries each year from patients and caregivers through the Suzanne M. and Irwin R. Rosenthal IBD Resource Center.
