The primary purpose of the CCFC is to raise funds for research to find a cure for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). CCFC also has 80 volunteer groups across Canada which offer support to members through education and fellowship. The Foundation provides relevant information on IBD to patients , their families, health professionals and the general public through its education brochures, local Chapter Education Events, the CCFC web site and through its national publication, The Journal.
The CCFC does not have a financial assistance program for people with IBD. We do sympathize with the financial challenges associated with IBD, however the Foundation's highest priority is to find a cure so that we can eliminate these diseases. To that end, our limited human and fiscal resources are directed towards medical research in IBD.
The CCFC is not medically staffed and therefore can not provide advice on diagnosis, symptoms, medication or treatment. Information posted on the CCFC web site or distributed in our publications should not replace consultations with qualified health professionals.
