At the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada (CCFC), we know that the cure for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is within reach. We know it deep within our gut, because research that we have funded has made great strides in uncovering some of the genetic, environmental and microbial factors contributing to the onset of the diseases.

But we’re not there yet.  One in 160 Canadians lives with the pain and uncertainty of Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis on a daily basis.  Alarmingly, more and more children under the age of 10 are being diagnosed.  The urgency to continue research into the causes, care and cures of IBD has never been greater.

We invite your business to partner with us…

To find the cure:

Finding the cure is a bold and ambitious undertaking, however the time is right to accelerate our efforts.  We need to be funding all of the most promising medical research projects each and every year.  To do this, we need to double our current rate of investment.  A goal of this magnitude cannot be achieved without your help.

To educate and raise awareness:

CCFC is committed to educating IBD patients, their families, health professionals and the general public about these diseases. Through our education symposiums, brochures, the Crohn’s and Colitis Patient Declaration and Crohn’s and Colitis Awareness Month campaign, we are spreading the word.  Working together we will lift the “veil of silence” that too often cloaks IBD.

Every single sponsorship or donation will contribute to a future without IBD for over 200,000 Canadian men, women and children.

We welcome the opportunity to further discuss how we may partner together to find the cure through such events as ROCK THE CURE.  Please feel free to contact me at simcoe@ccfc.ca or 705-795-2204.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
