A few weeks ago a very brave person stepped forward looking to share his story with the IBD community. Companion Magazine is more than proud to feature Andrew Cain, a young man who didn’t let severe UC, an ostomy and now a jpouch stop him from accomplishing his dreams of becoming a baseball player. Andrew’s story is one to be read, learned from and shared. Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are diseases that would cause many to want to quit or give up on goals of becoming an athelete. Instead of allowing his disease to rule his life, he took control and decided to use his disease to push him closer to accomplishing those goals instead.
Let’s all allow Andrew to teach us about positivity, even when the world is seemingly throwing the darkest osbtacles our way. Thanks for sharing, Andrew!
