Caroline Bramwell is the author of the inspirational book Loo Rolls to Lycra: The Ironman Dreams of an IBD Sufferer which is being launched in January 2018*.
After suffering from ulcerative colitis, an inflammatory bowel disease, and trying various extreme dietary regimes, her only option for getting back a quality of life was to have her large intestine removed and live with a permanent ileostomy. A self-confessed couch potato, Caroline turned to sport after surgery, dispelling the medical profession’s ‘you can’t do that’ attitude. After completing two 24-hour cycle events, Caroline turned to triathlon and is now competing at all levels, including full Ironman.
Caroline will be on the stage telling her inspiring story both Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th March. Keep an eye on the timetable for timings.
