Be the Voice of Inspiration and Change.
Submit Your Great Comebacks® Story Today!
Whether it is reaching a personal goal – starting a business, making the varsity basketball team, teaching kindergarten or participating in activities with your family – your story can be an inspiration to others. You have the power to provide hope and encouragement to those looking to connect with someone who truly knows their situation.
We encourage you to help in our mission of providing support to those living with serious intestinal diseases like Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, colorectal cancer or others conditions that can lead to ostomy surgery — by submitting a Great Comebacks® application for yourself or someone you know who is living their life with passion.
Now in its third decade, the Great Comebacks® Program, founded in 1984 by legendary San Diego Chargers placekicker Rolf Benirschke, aims to raise awareness about living with serious intestinal diseases and the quality of life that is possible with an ostomy. By educating patients, their families and friends as well as the general public we can help remove the stigma associated with these diseases and having an ostomy.
The deadline is fast approaching for this year’s applications, but there is still time to enter. If you would like to share your story or you know someone who would like to share their story, please visit Great Comebacks and submit a nomination for yourself or others by July 15, 2010.
Rob Hill is the Great Comebacks® Global Ambassador and his charity IDEAS is proud to be part of this great program. Tony Bell, IBD Adventures Everest trekker is the most recent recipient of the Great Comebacks® Award.
