The Great Bowel Movement
The Great Bowel Movement is a social awareness movement with the goals of empowering patients associated with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) including Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis, as well as J-Pouch and Ostomy, to embrace their disease, be proud of their experience, and spread awareness throughout their communities.
IBD is not big corporations, foundations, or pharmaceutical companies; it is me and you and all of us that live day-to-day with IBD and related conditions. By becoming our own personal spokespeople for our diseases, we can increase IBD awareness throughout the communities in which we live and work, and therefore, the world. We do this by providing tools to spread awareness, encouragement to become more open and accepting of your own disease, and a community to support each other.
