Together We'll
Make A Difference

Connecting to Cure Crohn's and Colitis unites the IBD community to promote public awareness about Crohn’s and colitis, to fund research for new treatments and cures, and to support patients and their families living with these chronic illnesses.

Community

Though there are other charities for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, Connecting to Cure Crohn's and Colitis
(C to C) has created a unique niche specific to bringing the IBD community together in a grassroots way. With a focus on caregivers and their families, we have created a community of support for those coping with these chronic illnesses, while raising much needed funds for research. The benefits of our efforts are spread amongst IBD related organizations. We raise money through events, anything from small lemonade stands to our signature annual event Rock the Night to Cure Crohn's and Colitis, and from individual donors.

To date, we have donated over 2.5 million dollars to IBD organizations and other related programs. 

Impact

The proceeds of our efforts have benefitted The Susan and Leonard Feinstein IBD Clinical Center at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, the Inflammatory Bowel Disease Program at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, The Inflammatory Bowel Disease Program at The Mayo Clinic, The Painted Turtle Camp in Lake Hughes, California which is a summer camp for kids with IBD, and families struggling with costs related to their child’s IBD at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. (CHLA).

We fund research that impacts the lifecycle of the disease, and endeavors to gain a better understanding of why the disease develops in children and adults. We are also committed to research that focuses on prevention strategies, especially in high-risk individuals. 

We are a proud sponsor of the Painted Turtle camp in Lake Hughes, California for kids and teens, ages 7 to 16, with IBD. Campers and their families attend free of charge.

My son was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease, an incurable, lifelong chronic illness. This has inspired  me to do whatever I can to help other patients and families navigate Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD).  Connecting to Cure Crohn's and Colitis has been my rock for over 6 years.  Our journey has been supported with incredible advice and love.
