• Harry a young CICRA member who suffers from Ulcerative Colitis, wrote the following poem:-

    Sometimes my IBD… By Harry, age 13

    Sometimes my IBD…
    Well to be honest it weakens me,
    Changes my life,
    For the better and worse,
    Always feeling tired,
    Yet if I didn’t have it,
    I wouldn’t be who I am now…

    A fighter,
    A warrior,
    Who spends their days fighting,
    What people don’t understand,
    Never giving up,
    Is what we do best!

    …Because we are the Warriors of IBS! Sorry… Did I say IBS? Oh, my fault… Must’ve got them confused again!
