Bo Parrish Awarded ConvaTec's 2012 Great Comebacks South Region Award

Triathlete Bo Parrish received the Great Comebacks South Region Award in September 2012 during a ceremony at the Southeast Region Wound Ostomy and Continence Nurses (WOCN) Society.  He received the award from Rolf Benirschke the founder and chairman of the Great Comebacks Program.  
Bo struggled with Crohn's disease for over a decade and finally got an ileostomy.  During his long recovery in the hospital he was visited by a triathlete friend and he then started planning his recovery to enter the sport as soon as possible.  He completed his first tri event less than 5 months after surgery.  Bo now has completed over 100 tri events and is a member of the Timex Multisport Team.  Congratulations Bo!!
