Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Few people know the fear, frustration and despair IBD patients and their families battle. Fewer still can poignantly communicate those feelings. Combining his experience as a writer, speaker and inflammatory bowel disease patient, Phillip Van Hooser has documented the physical toll and the emotional price of living with ulcerative colitis and IBD. His story is poignant, unvarnished and yet, encouraging. Phillip Van Hooser combines his personal perspective on IBD with his powerful storytelling ability to equip, encourage and inspire IBD patients and those organizations and individuals who support them.

From the Author

This story recounts in vivid detail a two-year period in my life as an inflammatory bowel disease patient. My perspective as an IBD patient offers a rare, unique and honest vantage point for considering the fears, anxieties and expectations of those battling these diseases. Is there pain and suffering detailed here? Yes, there is. It has not been sugarcoated. Is the book all about pain and suffering? No, it's not. Life is not all pain and suffering even for IBD patients. You will find marveous and redeeming examples of humor, friendship, love, hope, restoration and healing in this book.
