We dedicate this week (December 1-7) to Crohn's and Colitis Awareness Week, and its effort to shed light on the challenges faced by the millions of lives affected by this illness.
Facts about Crohn's and Colitis:

Crohn’s disease causes abdominal pain, sever diarrhea, fatigue, and malnutrition.
Ulcerative Colitis can lead to complications, such as severe dehydration, a perforated colon, bone loss, and inflammation.
