WE BELIEVE IT'S TIME FOR A CURE.
ABOUT PROPEL A CURE
Propel a Cure was born out of the realization that there are brilliant minds out in the research world who can make a difference in the fight to cure Crohn's disease. They have the ideas, but they lack the money to carry out the necessary work to bring us a cure. The goal then, for Propel a Cure is to raise funds for promising projects that will bring us one step closer to our goal. All money raised goes to research. There are no overhead costs.

ABOUT CROHN'S DISEASE
Crohn’s disease is an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that causes inflammation anywhere along the digestive tract from the mouth to the anus. This inflammation can involve different areas of the digestive tract in different people, although the ileum (the last part of the small intestines) and colon are almost always involved. It often digs deep into the layers of bowel tissue and causes excruciating, debilitating pain and sometimes leads to life-threatening conditions. Most people suffer from abdominal pain, severe diarrhea, fatigue, weight loss, and malnutrition. People may go through periods of remission where these symptoms quiet down for a while, only to reawaken in a severe flare. Others experience persistent and debilitating symptoms.
"There are no such things as incurable; there are only things for which man has not found a cure."
- Bernard Baruch
