Celebrating UC Success Contest Seeks to Educate and Inspire Ulcerative Colitis Patients
Date:3/11/2009

Ulcerative Colitis "Quick Tips" Contest Winners will be Awarded Travel to CCFA California Event

NEW YORK, March 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- For ulcerative colitis (UC) patients, managing their everyday life can be a challenge, but with perseverance and experience, many have found ways to help control their disease and live their lives. To continue the tradition of helping UC patients share and inspire one another, the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation, in partnership with Procter & Gamble Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (P&GP), proudly announce the second annual Celebrating UC Success program that includes a motivational contest to recognize, inspire and educate individuals whose lives are touched by UC. In 2008, the program's inaugural year, more than 600 people entered the contest, submitting personal stories of success to inspire and strengthen others in the UC community. To build on last year's success stories, the 2009 Celebrating UC Success program focuses on sharing and helping others by identifying Quick Tips -- "tried and true" lifestyle tips that people affected by UC have discovered through experience to help manage the challenges of their digestive disease on a daily basis.

"While every UC patient's disease is different and each situation is unique, we've found that there is a commonality in people faced with dealing with everyday life," said Kimberly Frederick, Vice President of Patient and Professional Services, Crohn's & Colitis Foundation. "Our members have told us that sharing tips and discussing ways to manage situations with others who have gone through similar experiences is a helpful process in managing their lives with UC. The Foundation is pleased to partner with Procter & Gamble Pharmaceuticals to launch the second year of this program and find out what has helped other patients achieve success over their disease."
