Nearly 1 in 200 Americans live each day with Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis, life-changing digestive diseases. Living with these inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) can be painful and isolating.

The Crohn's & Colitis Foundation is dedicated to curing Crohn's and colitis, and to improving the quality of life of children and adults affected by these diseases.

The Take Steps community also offers a safe, supportive environment for patients and families. Patients connect with others familiar with the ups and downs of IBD, as well as the friends who support their journey.

The Foundation has invested almost $300 million in research to date, enabling groundbreaking treatments and greatly enhancing lives.
