Cory Greenberg, an ambitious native Californian determined to become a professional cyclist, was diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) at 22 years old.
With his professional journey underway, becoming an athlete suddenly seemed impossible – having to travel across the globe for trainings and competitions while managing a chronic autoimmune disease with no current cure.
But ask him today, and Cory will tell you otherwise.
Cory has a message for people living with Crohn’s Disease and ulcerative colitis – the two debilitating, incurable forms of IBD – and their caregivers.
“An IBD diagnosis just walks into your life, and it has a huge mental impact,” Cory shared. “I didn’t take the diagnosis seriously because I didn’t want to truly accept it. Then, I reached a point with my condition where I couldn’t race, and I was facing the possibility of surgery.”
After starting on treatment, Cory’s condition and outlook began improving, and he shared how CVS Specialty has made getting his medication delivered and his questions answered simple – whether he’s in Germany, California, or anywhere in between.
