September is IC Awareness Month…let’s keep the #ICAwareness momentum going! It’s an incredible opportunity to spread IC Awareness, raise funds, circulate the facts, and help IC patients get a proper diagnosis sooner.

What can you do to get involved and help spread IC awareness?

Order an IC Awareness T-shirt

Purchase your very own IC Awareness t-shirt. Take your picture wearing your shirt, share it on social media, with #ICAwareness, and tag ICA! T-shirt store closes September 15, so place your order as soon as possible. T-shirts will be shipped shortly after the store closes.


Create an IC Awareness Month Facebook Fundraiser

Many are suffering from IC in silence. This is your opportunity to share your IC experience and educate the social media community about IC. Tell your story about what it’s like to live day-to-day with IC. Share what has helped you manage your IC flares. And raise the much needed funds for IC awareness, advocacy, education, and research to conquer IC. Visit the ICA Facebook Fundraiser page and click the “Raise Money” button to set up your fundraiser. The person who raises the most funds through an ICA Facebook Fundraiser from now through the end of September will win two IC Awareness t-shirts or one hoodie (your choice)!

Join us for one of our Coast-to-Coast Walks for an IC Cure!

ICA is going coast-to-coast! During IC Awareness month, Walks for an IC Cure take place on September 14 in San Diego, CA, and Charlotte, NC. Don’t miss this opportunity to meet with leaders of the IC community, and mingle with other IC patients and their families. Let’s walk together to create IC awareness, raise funds to educate healthcare providers about the special needs of people living with IC, promote and fund much needed research, and advocate on behalf of IC patients, researchers, and healthcare providers. Can’t join us at one of the locations above? Donate to the ICA Walk for an IC Cure program so we can continue to grow this very important IC awareness movement, or contact us at icamail@ichelp.org to organize a DIY (Do-It-Yourself) Walk for an IC Cure in your area. Register by Thursday, August 29 to guarantee your Walk for an IC Cure t-shirt, #ICAwareness bracelet, Mardi Gras necklace, and other giveaways. Registration will remain open until the day of the event.
