The Voices of Crohn’s and Colitis

This week is Crohn’s & Colitis Awareness Week.

At Crohnology, we’ve been spending the week honoring the faces — the patients who are spreading Crohn’s & Colitis Awareness. We created to show the world these people — bloggers, film-makers, tweeters, song-writers, and community organizers.

Throughout the week we’ve been recognizing some amazing patient activists, Ally Bain, a patient who’s gotten legislation called Ally’s Law passed in 12 states, and Reid Kimball, a patient who is directing a documentary film on people with Crohn’s.

Today we’re recognizing, Ken Baumann, an actor on “The Secret Life of an American Teenager,” who has recently spoken out about his Crohn’s to raise awareness.

Join us in recognizing these amazing activists, by sharing them with the web!
