It has been a while since I have posted and wioo start posting my own experiences again. In the meantime, its also been a while since I posted a list of athletes (past and present) who live with Crohn's Disease. So here you go:
David Garrard - Retired NFL Quarterback - Garrard suffers from Crohn's disease and has appeared in television commercials regarding treating the illness. He has spoken to children at the Painted Turtle Camp, a camp for children with disorders about living with Crohn's disease.
Carrie Johnson - Olympic Kayaking
George "The Animal" Steele - Wrestler - Maybe he got it from eating the turnbuckles
James Morrison - British Golfer
Kevin Dineen and Theo Fleury - NHL Hockey Players with Crohn's (Thank god for pads)
Matt Light - NFL Football with Crohn's Disease - Go Patriots! The three-time Super Bowl
champion had surgery to remove more than a foot of his intestine. Now retired
from football, the athlete shares his story with others to raise awareness and
educate the public about Crohn's disease.
