Right now, an estimated 500,000 people in the UK are living with a lifelong disease that many people have never heard of. Crohn’s and Colitis cause ulcers and inflammation in the gut and there is no cure. Symptoms include the urgent and frequent need to go to the toilet (often with blood), extreme fatigue and severe pain. The conditions can impact nearly every part of the body, leading to a lifetime of medication and, in many cases, life-altering surgery. They also impact many areas of life, including mental health and personal relationships.
Because of the stigma and misunderstanding surrounding these conditions, thousands of people are suffering in silence. By raising awareness, we can support those living with Crohn’s and Colitis and show them that they are not alone.
