Certificates for Crohn’s and colitis heroes

A parent of a child with inflammatory bowel disease recently came to us with an idea – a certificate that recognizes the people who make life easier for those living with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis. Her idea was to give kids and youth with IBD a way of showing their thanks to someone who has shown understanding and compassion for their condition, like a teacher, a coach, or a friend.
 
So we’ve created certificates that kids, teens, and parents can fill out and present to their Crohn’s and colitis heroes. Download the fillable PDF certificates below:
