I'd like to encourage everybody to read my cousin Tom's new book, Hell's Toilet. (Only he could call it that!) It describes his incredible battle with ulcerative colitis. Our family witnessed Tom's health decline rapidly to the point where his only option was to have his colon removed. Tom did not allow his illness to hold him back and only a few months after his surgery was able to run in a half marathon. Tom's story will inspire you! Check it out today!
