Meet Larry

Jack of All Trades, Master of Crohn's

About Larry

Larry remembers what it was like the first time he heard the words Crohn’s disease: “I thought my life had come to an end. Might as well forget about everything, no football or karate, just basically go sit in a corner. It was very hard. I felt isolated, and it took me almost 20 years to turn around and take control.”

And that’s just what Larry has done. Larry had a successful career, working his way up through the ranks of the Honeywell corporation. He’s a certified scuba diver and restores vintage muscle cars. And he has a loving wife and 3 children, one of whom also has Crohn’s.

What’s been the secret to Larry’s Crohn’s success? Learning and laughter, lots of laughter. “Learn everything you can,” Larry says, “Don’t try and read between the lines. Ask your doctor a lot of questions. And talk to other people with Crohn’s...you never have to feel alone.”
