Connecting to Cure Crohn's and Colitis unites the IBD community to promote public awareness and to fund research to find new treatments and a cure for Crohn's and Colitis.​


Community

Though there are other charities for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, Connecting to Cure Crohn's and Colitis (C to C) has created a unique niche specific to bringing the IBD community together in a grassroots way. With a focus on children and their families, we have created a community of support for those coping wtih these chronic illnesses, while raising much needed funds for research. The benefits of our efforts are spread amongst IBD related organizations. We raise money through events, anything from small lemonade stands to our signature annual event Rock the Night to Cure Crohn's and Colitis, and from individual donors.

"I knew going into this record that I wanted to hear something full and vibrant," says singer-songwriter and former leader of The Wallflowers Jakob Dylan of his new album Women and Country. "I wanted horns and fiddle, for it to be as big and beautiful sounding as it could with instrumentation. That changes the lyrics and tone of what you're writing." Those instincts are evident across the album's tracks, a lush collection that blends country, blues and folk into a poignant aural evocation of rural landscapes. From the soft snare and forlorn strings of "Nothing But the Wide World For Us" and defiantly proud lyrics of "Down On Our Own Shield" ("It's a struggle, it's a strain / it's all give and no take / whatever it is now, it's up to our waists") to the dirgey country strains of "Smile When You Call Me That," which describes a love gone bad in deceptively minimal terms ("I'm drunk and you're insane / I can't quit and you won't change / Ain't no half-hearted Romeo / why do you treat me so?"), the 40-year-old's latest displays an artful mastery of roots-rock language and musical phrasing. And where his previous record, 2008's Seeing Things, was a stripped back "exercise in limitations," Women and Country is the work of a mature performer vested in exploring the byways of the American songbook.
