Exciting News for Crohn’s Patients!

Hi everybody – its Ash here! I have very very exciting news for individuals with Crohns Disease. An educational DVD (Free!) is going to be released soon in Canada addressing topics specifically for individuals with Crohns. Topics include: nutrition, exercise, family, relationships/bfs/gfs, medications, inspirational story…. Just to name a few J . Abbott Laboratories (the guys that make Humira), one of the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada’s (CCFC) big sponsors has partnered with CCFC to release this DVD... Super exciting stuff! There is also a gastroenterologist (my GI, to be exact ;) ) that gives an introduction to each topic, and explains in detail, using pictures and cool animations, what happens physically with Crohns.

So! Keep your eyes PEELED for this! I believe it will be available through the CCFC and/or your specialist. You’ll see me in there too J Talking about relationships… I hope you find my experience helpful to you! Let me know when and if you see it, and let me know what you think! Lets get a good discussion going!

  1. That's awesome news Ashley! I would have loved to be part of that! Unfortunately, we seem to be excluded from a lot of the bigger initiatives and events because we're located out west.
    Will each of the chapters receive a copy of the DVD so we can use it at education/fundraising events? The Victoria chapter would love to get our hands on one.
