Blog Giveaway!

As part of C-Cubed (Cook-Challenge-Cure), we are pleased to announce that we will be hosting our first giveaway! We hope that you will participate and help us spread the word.

Let us introduce you to The Foul Bowel.  A free copy could be yours! Read below for details!

The Foul Bowel, written by John Bradley, a real Crohn’s sufferer, is a candid, humorous and inspiring user’s guide to living with Crohn’s disease which distills experience and hope into 101 tips for the newly diagnosed, the discouraged veterans and the resigned-to-their-fate Crohnies. It won’t cure you, but WILL make you feel better about being a Crohnie. (

Reviews Of The Book:

To read Marnina’s review of The Foul Bowelclick here. 

“All doctors, nurses, caregivers and patients should read this book…John Bradley is the Stephen King of inflamed bowels.”

~25-year-old Crohnie

“Many patients with chronic diseases feel compelled to write about their experiences with the disease, with their doctors, with their occupations, with their friends, and with their families. This book is filled with practical tips, which are clearly highlighted. The book chronicles Mr. Bradley’s personal journey with Crohn’s disease, mainly in the National Health Service, in the UK. Much of the book is focused on his experiences through the 1980s and 1990s, providing the reader with insight into how both diagnostic testing and treatment techniques have progressed over the years. Written in a candid and entertaining style, this book gives the Crohn’s patient some comic relief, while at the same time providing practical advice.”

~Dr. Fred Saibil, a gastroenterologist at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Toronto, Canada, and a Professor of Medicine at the University of Toronto, reviews The Foul Bowel. Dr. Saibil specializes in the diagnosis and management of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. His book, “Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis”, written for the public, is a worldwide bestseller.
