Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis


The Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis's Resource page is a collaborative project of NeedyMeds and the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America. It is intended to provide information on Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis and to streamline and simplify the way those with Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis may find assistance paying for their medications.

Known collectively as inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis affects nearly 1 in 100 people. They are painful, medically incurable diseases that attack the digestive system. Crohn's disease may attack anywhere along the digestive tract, while ulcerative colitis inflames only the large intestine (colon). Symptoms may include abdominal pain, persistent diarrhea, rectal bleeding, fever, and weight loss. Many patients require numerous hospitalizations and surgery. Most people develop the diseases between the ages of 15 and 35; however, the incidence is increasing in children.

The Crohn's & Colitis Foundation is the leading non-profit organization focused on both research and patient support for inflamatory bowel disease (IBD), with the mission of curing Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, and of improving the quality of life of the millions of Americans living with IBD. The Foundation's work is dramatically accelerating the research process through investment in research initiatives, while also providing extensive education and support resources for patients and their families, medical professionals, and the public.
