|Dear CCFA Friend,Imagine if every dollar you gave to the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America could work twice as hard and have twice the impact? Now it can!That’s because until September 15, CCFA’s National Board of Directors will match, dollar for dollar, every donation we receive – up to a total of $50,000.
You know that supporting cutting-edge research is the surest way to increase our ability to treat Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. And with your help, CCFA has played a part in every major scientific breakthrough relating to inflammatory bowel diseases.
But we have a lot more to do. Cases of Crohn’s and colitis are on the rise – especially among children. And while some patients respond well to medical interventions, others have more aggressive IBD that current therapies are inadequate to treat.
Your donation today to CCFA (especially valuable when doubled) will support crucial research endeavors which will bring us new understanding and better ways to diagnose, treat, and even prevent IBD.
But supporting critical research is not all your gift will do. Your doubled donation will also help keep CCFA’s education and support programs going strong – offering a lifeline to newly diagnosed patients, to teenagers and kids, and to everyone grappling with the physical and emotional toll of living with Crohn’s and colitis.
I know you care deeply about improving the lives of every person living with Crohn’s and colitis. And I know you share my vision of curing these diseases so that future generations will be free of them.
That’s why I hope you’ll take advantage of this rare opportunity to double your impact with a generous gift to CCFA today.
Your support makes a huge difference. Thank you for your continued commitment!
Richard J. Geswell
