Today we wanted to give you a glimpse into our plans for the future at the Intense Intestines Foundation. We want to reach out to those with Inflammatory Bowel Diseases and ostomies as much as possible. Our goal is to improve their lives,make life easier while dealing with these conditions and show patients with the right planning they can do anything with an IBD and/or ostomy.
This is why we’re going to be starting a Never Stay Quiet campaign this spring. The Never Stay Quiet campaign will encourage those with Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis and ostomies to do what ever they can to overcome their disease and talk about it as well. We want the world to be more aware of how these conditions affect peoples lives everyday and the only way to do this is by discussing them more.
A big reason why Inflammatory Bowel Diseases don’t get the needed government funding for research, is that the diseases aren’t talked about. Without them being discussed on a regular basis like other conditions, we’ll never have the awareness needed in order for real change to happen. This is why the Never Stay Quiet campaign will urge people to talk about their IBD and ostomy in every way. Once this happens people won’t judge our diseases as much and progress will be made many areas.
The Never Stay Quiet campaign will include online streaming video chats, events of all kinds, contests to raise awareness and other efforts that we’re planning so please stay tuned for updates. We hope that you’ll help us during the Never Stay Quiet campaign to raise awareness as much as possible, so real change can happen for those with Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis and ostomies.
Never Stay Quiet!
