I have been looking for the card that lets you use any bathroom in a store or restaurant if you have Crohn's or UC. Anyone know the site?

There isn't an official card. If you are a CCFA member the back of your card explains needing to jump in line. The law in IL is Ally's law. You can print it and carry it with you.

Here's the act in the Illinois Code:

Im in Australia and over here the crohns/colitis membership gave me a Cant Wait Card that if shown in certain places they must let you use the toilet immediately. Mind you It doesnt matter to me anymore now I have an ileostomy

Thanks for the link, but I am not seeing a card on that site. Would I have to print that whole page and show them?

Yes, there is no card. The CCFA member card explains your condition, but the law is just a law. You can hand it to them and explain they are subject to a fine if they don't allow you to use it. It also absolves them of any liability if you are injured by entering a nob-public area of the business. But, nope, no card to explain the law. Maybe the IL CCFA chapter should offer that.
