Parents

Nearly everybody who has ulcerative colitis has parents. And more often then not, when people with UC are diagnosed initially, they tend to be at the early stages of their lives.

So, that is the reason for the section of the website devoted to parents of kids who have ulcerative colitis.

Some of the stories talk about the decision making that these parents are in the middle of, especially with regards to different types of treatments mainly in the form of medications and potential surgery that they are all faced with. None of this is easy decision making, but these stories should help to provide other parents with the reality that there are many others in the same situation.
