Hi! We are Sara and Dan, and we both have Crohn's disease. A lot of our friends have Crohn's or ulcerative colitis (and/or ostomies and ileal pouches). We don't like that they're sick, but we do like having them in our lives!

Having IBD can be really difficult, and no one can quite understand that like another patient. We would like to help you make new and, we hope, meaningful and lasting connections with other IBD patients. We may all be pretty great on our own, but together we become almost obnoxiously great!

So, "Gut Over Here!" to our next meetup. If we're not in your area, we probably hope to be soon (unless you live some place that doesn't have donuts). Our meetups are for all ages, and we welcome all friends, caregivers, and loved ones to join us.
