International PBC Day - Sunday 12th September 2021

Launch of PBC TV

For International PBC Day 2021 we are delighted to announce the launch of ‘PBC TV’; a designated library of PBC related video content created especially for those living with PBC. We have released the first of our bite-sized videos on PBC Day (12th September 2021) through our YouTube channel.

PBC video series

These bite-sized videos (each under 15 minutes) cover a wide range of PBC topics and are presented by our immensely knowledgeable and well-respected international list of special guests. The videos are divided into three sections:

This is PBC - A concise introduction to PBC, perfect for those that are recently diagnosed. In the coming months we hope to add translated versions in a range of languages.

PBC and … - These videos include PBC and Itch, PBC and Bone disease, PBC and Symptoms, PBC and Consequences of cirrhosis, and PBC and Life after transplantation.

PBC in my Locale - We hope to show you best practice in your locale (be this your country, region, or state) so that you're empowered to experience this best practice in your own PBC journey. As more doctors become involved, we shall be adding to the series.

Get involved

Leading up to the big day we have been sharing updates on our social media channels, please give us a follow @PBCFoundation on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and subscribe to YouTube.

We are encouraging members to use the hashtag #PBCday2021, please share our posts to help raise awareness of PBC and to educate the general public about living with PBC. Together we really can make a difference!

There may be also live events you want to attend. We are all living under different Covid-19 situations, and each have to make our own choices based on where we live and how the Covid situation looks.

Fundraising ideas

During the last 18 months many fundraising events have had to be cancelled or postponed. With restrictions now easing we wanted to share some fundraising inspiration, they can be all be done socially distanced and allow the opportunity to practice your ‘movement is medicine’. Why don't you get involved with:

  • Walking or running (lapse of the garden, street or further afield)
  • Cycling challenge
  • Garden Olympics; fun garden goals including hopping, skipping or jumping on a trampoline, 
  • Virtual team / group competitions (we suggest £5 to enter)

For more ideas, please see our Fundraising page. If you're unable to organise an activity please donate here.

Don't forget to share your PBC Day 2021 fundraising pictures to our social media channels, or email the office. We'd love to see how you get involved.
