Truly inspirational- thanks for posting that. The only glitch in the way the article was written, in my opinion, was that they stated as fact that surgery for UC would have been "career ending" for him. Career delaying yes (and it is great to see he didn't have to resort to it), but there are a number of professional athletes and other people in physically demanding jobs who have made full comebacks even after jpouch or ostomy surgery. But either with or without a colon, it's wonderful to see these success stories.
