Manchester United and Scotland midfielder Darren Fletcher has been diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis, and will take an extended break from football. Ulcerative Colitis is a chronic inflammatory bowel condition and it can affect anyone. Over the past few seasons Fletcher had some spells on the sidelines due to an unknown illness and now it is known he was suffering from this disease.
Ulcerative Colitis is a serious disease which increases the risk of colon cancer, in order to treat this illness the Scotland captain has taken the advice of doctors to and will now face a lenghty spell on the sidelines.
I suggest everyone do some research about this disease and find out ways to prevent or treat it.
Football Is Life, but your health comes first, Get Well Soon Fletch!
