Until there is a cure, we need IDEAS
We are a non-profit organization working to make Canadians and Americans aware of the issues people living with intestinal disease.
If you should experience any one or combination of the following symptoms, consult with your doctor ASP.
- Rectal bleeding (blood and mucus in the stool)
- Rectal urgency (frequent trips to the toilet and urgent need to move the bowels that often cant be delayed)
- Severe abdominal cramps
- Frequent diarrhea
- Increased intestinal gas
- Persistent fatigue
- Weight loss
- Fistulas and abscesses around the anus and ulcers within anal canal
- Failure to grow or thrive in children
We’re committed to education and awareness programs that help to remove the stigma surrounding living with an intestinal disease or an ostomy. We’re committed to making access to information about intestinal diseases easy, via this website.
Join our IDEAS Facebook page to connect with members, spread the word about intestinal disease with your social networks and learn more about what IDEAS is all about. We’re always open to new IDEAS that help spread the word and educate people about intestinal disease.
Want to support IDEAS programs? We sponsor children and youth with intestinal disease to attend summer camps in Canada and the Youth Rally in the USA to help deal with the psycho-social aspects of living with intestinal diseases. In 2010 we will be granting funds to a new Inflammatory Bowel Disease research centre being built at the University of British Columbia’s Okanagan campus. You can help us by making a donation through Canada Helps. Why not contact us and become a member of the society for only $10.
