Healthline.com supports the CCFA for IBD Awareness

Hi readers! I was recently contacted by some nice folks at Healthline.com and they have some exciting news to share. From May 16 to July 1, 2012 Healthline.com is teaming up with the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) to help raise money to find a cure. I checked out the Healthline website and they have general information on various conditions and illnesses such as Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis as well as interesting articles on healthy living and various other topics. If you're in need of some information, this is a pretty good place to start! I wish a site like this was around when I was newly diagnosed, it would've saved me hours of searching for answers on my own when I had no idea where to look! Please show your support by sending a donation. Even if its only a dollar you can spare, we'll be closer to a cure! (If you can be more generous, even better!) Hooray!

Colitis, or inflammation of the lining tissues of the large intestine (colon), can be caused by infections, loss of blood supply, or chronic diseases. Despite the cause, people suffering from colitis may have typical symptoms that include abdominal pain, cramping, bloating, and diarrhea. Some types of colitis may be associated with bloody diarrhea. Colitis can be part of a disease that affects other parts of the body, causing fever, chills, fatigue, and dehydration symptoms (weakness, decreased urine output). Ulcerative colitis is a chronic condition that has other manifestations in the body, including mouth ulcers, joint swelling, and skin inflammation.
