We Love: Crohn’s Disease Support Network

This week on WEGO Health Loves: Crohn’s Disease Support Network (CDSN)
Celebrating one year of providing “A Social Support Network for Crohn’s Disease patients, family, and friends,” The CDSN continues to uphold its mission of helping those within the Crohn’s Disease community. Because, as its homepage says, “there is a large majority of people who know someone with Crohn’s or have heard of it, [but] have no idea what it is or how serious it can be.

The Crohn’s Disease Support Network, founded by Health Activist Jason Leitman, has over 830 members! In addition to offering a place for patients to discuss the condition they have in common, there is information for those who have a loved one with Crohn’s, and an overall welcoming environment for anyone interested in understanding this disease. As Jason says in his introduction video, “nobody should ever have to live with Crohn’s alone and have no support it’s so important to be able to connect with other people who are experiencing what you’re experiencing…When I was first diagnosed I didn’t want anything to do with support, didn’t think I needed it. And boy was I wrong.”

Through the CDSN, Jason and his community members work to raise awareness about Crohn’s disease. If you’re interested in learning more about Jason’s work with the CDSN:
