Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America
Since its founding in 1967, Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of American (CCFA) has been dedicated to finding cures for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. In addition to funding research, CCFA is committed to improving the quality of life for patients and their families living with these diseases. Education and programs supporting that goal take place at 40 CCFA chapters throughout the country. The organization serves more than 300,000 patients each year and has been commended for uniting the medical community and strengthening research for its cause by the National Institutes of Health.
