CdiffSurcicorsLOGO2015NOVEMBER 1st is  C. diff. Survivors Day


Sometimes in life, events occur that fracture the very foundation on which we stand upon. Our life, as we have known it, is forever changed and we find ourselves in an unexpected struggle, first just to survive and then to move forward.
The C. diff. Survivors Alliance Network, part of the C Diff Foundation,  is dedicated for providing healing support for individuals coping with both physical and mental pain, the complex treatments, psychosocial losses and alterations, and the excruciating grief with complex emotions that accompany the loss of a loved one.
We hope that you will find resources here to help you cope with, and eventually heal from, what may well be the worst pain experienced from an infection.
It is important to know that people can recover and do survive this horrific infection.  There can be extended recovery time, or life-long symptoms associated with this gastrointestinal infection.  There are also individuals that may never stop grieving the loss of their loved ones, but they do survive and go on to lead meaningful and contributory lives.
This site was designed by C. difficile infection survivors for survivors.  The culture here as well as on our forum is one that recognizes and respects the courage and resilience of survivors at all stages of their personal journeys.   We appreciate your stories of how a C. difficile infection touched your life, or how it effected your child’s life, and how it may have been involved with the passing of your loved one and friend.  Each story shared is a ribbon that is woven in connecting hearts worldwide.

Never give up HOPE

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the consequences of Clostridium difficile infections (CDI), if existing, on the quality of life of patients during the acute infection. This study will also explore the post-CDI symptoms that patients might experience.

This study will help physicians, healthcare providers and policy makers understand the burden of CDI and to strengthen the need for therapies to combat and prevent CDI. ”
