Crohn's Disease is essentially defined as an incurable autoimmune inflammatory bowel disease or "IBD." However, it is presently most effectively explained AS IBD instead of as "Crohn's Disease" or as its own illness with its own very specific symptoms. I think Global Social Awareness of Crohn's Disease would be significantly expanded if its "Awareness Campaigns" gave it its own identity thus forcing it out from under the "umbrella" of IBD. Perhaps then people around the world would understand the often horrific nature of Crohn's Disease and the pervasive effect it has on patients. Following the lead of Breast Cancer Awareness Campaigns and also focusing on the everyday heroes who battle and manage Crohn's Disease might then lead to a more Fundraising-Friendly Global Identity.

The Medical Minute ("TMM") is a Continuing Series of Short Videos produced by veteran Crohn's Disease Patient, Michael A. Weiss, which highlight informative aspects of chronic illness, healthcare and healthcare reform. Mr. Weiss' TMM Videos can also be found on his Blog located at www.HospitalPatient.com and also at the following You Tube Channels: Health Care Reality and Pro Patient TV.
