This fund has been developed in response to patients who have contacted PAF for help with their medication expenses and could not find help. While this fund has been fully designed and we are ready to provide needed support to these patient communities, this fund is not yet able to accept applications for assistance as we are still working to secure charitable donations that will allow us to open it.

About Crohn’s Disease
Crohn’s Disease is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease and belongs to a group of conditions known as Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD). Crohn’s most commonly affects the end of the small bowel (the ileum) and the beginning of the colon, but it may affect any part of the gastrointestinal tract from the mouth to the anus, it can also affect the eyes, skin and joints. Crohn’s disease can affect the entire thickness of the bowel wall, and the inflammation can have normal areas between patches of diseased intestine. Crohn’s affects men and women equally, is more prevalent among adolescents and young adults between the ages of 15 and 35, and 20% of people with Crohn’s have a blood relative with IBD.
