Actor Sacha Dhawan lived with Crohn's for many years before speaking openly about his experiences with the condition.
For years I battled with Crohn’s, and suffered in complete silence.
My biggest regret is not talking about it sooner because when I did, I discovered that I wasn't alone.
Crohn's & Colitis UK are an amazing charity with a wealth of support and resources that have helped to bridge the gap between myself and the Crohn’s and Colitis community. This in turn has had a profoundly positive effect on my mental health, giving me a lot of strength and hope when I needed it the most. I can't thank the charity enough for bringing us all together and giving us the space to share our own stories - it takes guts.
