The Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of Canada (CCFC) believes that a cure will be found for Crohn's disease and Ulcerative Colitis.
To realize this, the CCFC is committed to raising funds for medical research. The CCFC also believes it is important to make all individuals with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) aware of the foundation, and to educate these individuals, their families, health professionals and the general public about these diseases.
SickKids has launched a free mobile app to empower teens and parents of young children with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) to take control of the disease.
myIBD app allows patients to track their food, stool, pain and frequency of washroom visits all on their mobile device. It also provides educational tools to help manage these symptoms. myIBD app can also benefit adults with IBD and is currently available for free in the App Store for iPhones, iPad, and the iPod touch. It will also be available to Android devices later this year.
