The NW Chapter for the CCF is doing some awesome things to help those with IBD. From children to adults, they are making a difference in people’s lives by providing support, resources, and community! I love volunteering for this organization and working with the other fabulous volunteers so dedicated to the mission in finding a cure.

I love that this Foundation's mission supports both important research to find a cure to IBD and resources/support for patients living with this disease. I learned about the foundation when my daughter was diagnosed and found their support and information really helpful when making treatment decisions. Now that she is more stable I have enjoyed being able to give back by volunteering!
