  1. Clint – Thank you for sharing your courage and soul with us. I found your video to be deeply moving. I share your feelings having UC. It’s changed my life in so many ways. I try to be positive but there are days… It has made me stronger, more empathetic and grateful. I never thought a life-long condition could make me a better person but I feel it has. Every cloud has a silver lining.

    Thank you again.
