Strategy toward 2026


Empower those with IBD to live fearlessly as we drive towards a cure and ultimately a future that is free of Crohn’s and Colitis.


We believe in being fearless, and at CCA we:

  • Improve quality of life by helping people understand, respond to and actively manage their
  • Empower and support our community – encouraging innovation, advancing quality of care, and facilitating new knowledge informed by deeper research.
  • Advocate, educate and facilitate, leading tough conversations about taboo topics.

We want people to be authentic and unapologetic about their Crohn’s or Colitis – whether that leaves them laughing or crying. We know being fearless means there will still be bad days, bad months, or bad years – this is a long-term and life-altering condition – it’s about giving people the
courage, confidence, and the ability to face things head on.

Because in fearlessness, there is strength to drive us toward a cure.
