I know there are alot of females here that may have never heard of Steve Mcnair. He was an NFL quarterback that played the bulk of his career with the Tennessee Titans. He also was afflicted with Crohn's disease, and spoke out about his battle with the disease. He showed that it was very possible to attain a high level of success in a difficult sporting arena, while suffering the effects of this disease. He served as a great inspiration.
There hasn't been much reported about his death. I assume there will be more detailed reports to follow. 
My daughter was diagnosed Feb. 19/07, (13 yrs. old at time of diagnosis), with Crohn's of the Terminal Illium. Has used Prednisone and Pentasa. Started Imuran (02/09), had an abdominal abscess (12/08). 2cm of Stricture.

I should have pointed out that his death was NOT Crohn's related. Unfortunately, there was vilolence involved.

He was found with a bullet wound to the head. A 20 year old woman was found nearby also shot to death.

OH NO,
 
How terribly embarrassing. I'm afraid I've mixed up Steve Mcnair with David Garrard. Mcnair was in fact killed, but it's David Garrard that was a quarterback with the Jacksonville Jaguars that has Crohn's. My sincere apologies to the moderators and all for the confusion.
 
Garrard has spoken publicly about his battle with Crohn's, and serves as a great inspiration.  Again, my apologies.

Wolfie, Tom just corrected himself. He said Garrard not McNair had Crohns.
