Inspiration in unexpected places

Here is the June News Letter from CCFA.
Letter from Rick Geswell, CCFA President Rick Geswell I am pleased to share two exciting updates this month. First, we received the highest rating in the most recently published issue of the Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Guide. The Alliance helps donors make informed giving decisions and promotes high standards of conduct among organizations that solicit contributions from the public. You can see our full profile here. Second, our IBD Day on the Hill was an overwhelming success! In addition to 18 teams making over 150 visits, the Crohn's & Colitis Caucus hosted a Congressional briefing highlighting specialty tier legislation which had more than 100 attendees. Our first virtual IBD Day on the Hill was also a success with more than 12,000 views on Faceboook and 700 patient stories shared. Inspiration in Unexpected Places Jazz Jazz was diagnosed with severe Crohn's disease at age three. His father Denis says that through the medications, hospital visits, tests and scans, Jazz remained positive, strong and determined. Over the next few years, Jazz has been a comfort and inspiration to everyone who knows him – especially his father's Team Challenge teammates in Las Vegas. Now six, Jazz is even more determined to help find cures for this disease. He believes that the cures are out there... and that together, we'll find it. Find out more about Team Challenge and how you can help make a difference through this amazing program.
