IBD Unmasked Toronto ComiCon contest

When people live with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis – the two most common forms of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) – their illness isn’t always evident. Abdominal cramps, fatigue, and frequent bathroom trips are just some of the symptoms, but they’re not always obvious to the eye, and they can be hard to talk about.

IBD Unmasked features a superhero team and graphic illustrations to highlight the strength of, and inspire confidence in, those living with IBD.

What does your superhero look like?

To celebrate the work of IBD Unmasked, Crohn’s and Colitis Canada is giving away three pairs of deluxe passes to Toronto ComiCon, taking place March 17-19 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. For your chance to win, create your own superhero at ibdunmasked.com, then tweet an image of your superhero to @getgutsycanada. Full contest terms and conditions are below.

Good luck to everyone who enters!
