Practical advice on living with Crohn’s Disease from a long-time sufferer. William Sparke was diagnosed with the condition as a child, was part of a pioneering drugs trial which was ultimately abandoned, and finally endured intestinal surgery in his early twenties. This book offers his highly personal perspective to parents struggling to understand what their children are having to go through and how to support and help them.

William has a business studies degree from Lancaster University, works as a project manager for a major UK enterprise and, despite his Crohn’s, is the offensive coach for the Hertfordshire Cheetahs American Football squad.
