Help JCCSG help others

Dear member,

JCCSG has been founded almost 6 years ago to help those struggling with Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis. Over the past few years, we have helped people alleviate their struggle to survive the difficulties of these diseases. We have provided general information, assisted with medical referrals, launched educational symposiums and support group events.

In the past few months, we have spent a lot of resources to improve and strengthen connections with doctors to be able to expedite appointments, to provide support for those struggling with the disease and their families, and to arrange support gatherings. We also have many great ideas in the pipeline for the future.

We never asked our beneficiaries for any fee, and intend to continue to do so for as long as we can. However, we need financing to be able to launch new projects and keep up with the old ones.

Here we are with a plea to all of you: please help us out so we'll be able to help you better. Any donation, no matter how small, will go a long way in making it all possible.


You can donate here: https://thechesedfund.com/cause/help-jccsg-to-help-others​​


You can also send us a Chase QuickPay to: Info@JCCSG.org

Or you can send us a check, payable to JCCSG Inc., to:

Audio of Lakewood Event & Purim Alert!

Dear Member,

Here is the Dropbox link to download the Audio recording of the previous event in Lakewood.
JCCSG Event #9 - 3/2/16 - LRBCL Lakewood NJ

*

PURIM ALERT!!!

We're sending this email early enough... it's a friendly reminder about the danger of mixing certain medications with alcohol. In some cases, alcohol interactions may decrease the effectiveness of medications or render them useless. In other cases, alcohol interactions may make drugs harmful or even toxic to your body, even in small amounts!

We witnessed many patients taking Flagyl - Metronidazel and they drank alcohol having very unpleasant and some even life threatening side effects, Therefore if you're taking Flagyl - Metronidazel, do NOT drink! (We pointed out one Antibiotic, but there are many more other medications with the same danger).

In any case, each and every Crohn's and Colitis patient should double check with their doctor if drinking alcohol while taking your medication is safe, and if you're allowed to drink even a drop!

Please be responsible! Do it for yourself and for your family.

A Freilichen Purim! And Tumid B'Simcha!
