Patient Stories

"When We See Us" is something that is long overdue. I am grateful for COCCI for taking steps to create opportunities for us to be included, seen & heard. I have been a Crohn's patient for 25 years & I have never been informed about any education opportunities. I wouldn't even know where to find opportunities like that. Who's responsibility is it to keep patients informed? is it my physicians? At this point, I am just grateful. Having this education gets me to where I need to be and allows me the opportunity to advocate for what I deserve.

Nicole Watson,
Crohn's Patient '96
