Being diagnosed with IBD is chalenging for anyone – but having a young child diagnosed is distressing and daunting for the whole family. There are usually hundreds of questions:

  • Why did my child get this?
  • Is it something we did (or didn’t) do?
  • How is IBD treated?
  • What are our options?
  • Will she have a normal life?
  • What does the future hold for him?
  • Will my other children also get this disease?
  • What is IBD anyway?

You and your family are not alone
