With deep sadness and a heavy heart I would like to let you know that a great IBD and IBS Advocate recently passed away.Jennifer Jaff, a lawyer whose nearly four-decade struggle with Crohn's Disease led her to become a leading advocate for people with chronic illnesses, died on Sept. 14, 2012 at her home in Farmington, Conn. She was 55.Jennifer started the Advocacy for Patients with Chronic Illness organization to help people with legal challenges related to their chronic illness. Jennifer was a tireless supporter of IBD and IBS patients. I frequently referred IBS sufferers to Jennifer.This article appeared in the New York Times about her passing.http://www.nytimes.com/2012/09/24/health/jennifer-jaff-legal-advocate-for-the-ill-dies-at-55.html
