Former NFL placekicker for the San Diego Chargers, Rolf Benirschke, at the age of 24 and in his second season with the team, was struck with ulcerative colitis and needed life-saving ileostomy surgery. Through the support of his family and friends, his teammates and fans, Rolf made an incredible comeback and was able to play the sport he loved for another seven years.

After reading each of the twelve amazing comeback stories profiled in Embracing Life, anyone going through the struggles of inflammatory bowel disease or facing ostomy surgery will be inspired, encouraged, and hopeful that they too can have their own personal comeback story.
