I am very happy to have Yes Wellness lending their support to my Kilimanjaro fundraising trek for many reasons, but first a mini intro.
My name is Robert Hill. In my early twenties I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease and soon after needed a surgery to save my life. Today, I live with an ileostomy and without my colon. Years ago, I would have wanted you to feel sorry for me because I felt sorry for myself – but that was a long time ago. That was a time before I realized that knowledge was key and that I had been handed a second chance to live life. Why waste this second chance?
Once my new outlook on life had taken root, I thought:
- No one talks about intestinal issues
- Information is hard to find
- Good and relevant information is even harder to find
