Thanks for the update! It's always good to hear stories about how people recover and get back with their lives. Also, another high profile person to get the word out :) I'm glad he's well.

Because of Pisani's diagnoses , I've followed him and his team throughout the season and to do what he does with a disease like ours is amazing and inspiring.

My very own personal story mirrors Pisani's. We're both athlete's that didn't let this disease stop us. Plus, I myself was down to either Remicade or surgery just like Pisani.
