Please take a moment to read the stories of some of our members who have overcome the adversity of being diagnosed with a chronic illness. With your support, CCA will be able to continue to offer support to the thousands of other Australians diagnosed with Crohn's or colitis.
"The I of IBS means irritable, the I of IBD means inflammatory. The former means your bowel is slightly annoyed, the latter means it is on fire. Only one of these conditions can be treated with yoghurt."
