We have watched a lovely little girl become very unwell with IBD and continue to lead as normal a life as she possibly can with help from professionals (GOSH) and her fantastic family. We watched her some weeks ago running around with our own daughter and all her little friends – no one would guess she has been through so much. Collaborative healthcare is vital. Sharing knowledge and experiences empowers patients and all those involved in health care. I am happy to have the opportunity to support ICN so that all children with IBD can have a positive treatment experience.
