Welcome to +The Crohns Colitis Effect Channel on YouTube.
My name is Frank Garufi Jr., founder of +The Crohns Colitis Effect on Google+, and this is my 8 year old son, Domenic, who has Crohn's Disease.
+The Crohns Colitis Effect was created to bring education and awareness for Inflammatory Bowel Disease, otherwise known as IBD. IBD is an Autoimmune Disease that affects roughly 2.2 million people worldwide, which there is no cure for.
Crohn's and Ulcerative Colitis are the two primary forms of IBD. It is a very painful disease with symptoms of extreme fatigue, inflammation throughout the body, swelling in joints, frequent trips to the bathroom, malnutrition, plus so many more.
I'm a firm believer in Knowledge is Power! The more we know, the better chance we have of helping Domenic and the millions of people like him with this disease.
