"I'm so thankful for the Girls with Guts site. When I'm concerned, confused or discouraged/depressed I can come to this site and get great advice and encouragement. Thanks GWG!" "... we have gone to two Girls with Guts retreats, which have been truly soul-affirming. It’s really heartwarming to have someone who knows what you’re going through, who you can vent to- and giggle with- about all of the trials and awkward situations IBD brings."

"Girls With Guts has really helped me! Its a lovely little place where I can go for help on anything! IBD can left me feeling pretty isolated and it is community pages like this that offer a sense of security and love in a time of need. There is no judgement from anyone and it is full of lots of people going through the same thing; making my IBD experience much less lonely!"


When making up your holiday gift lists, don’t forget your favorite non-profits! Girls with Guts is a community of women with Inflammatory Bowel Disease and ostomies that connect via social media and yearly retreats. Although approximately 1.6 million Americans are affected with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, this disease can be incredible isolating. Girls with Guts creates a safe and supportive environment for women with IBD to empower each other as they navigate through the muddied and often treacherous waters of chronic illness. By promoting advocacy and awareness, Girls with Guts helps women with IBD to build confidence and self-esteem. Please consider celebrating #GivingTuesday this year with a tax-deductible donation to Girls with Guts!
