Team Positive Overview

Dealing with a life threatening chronic illness like Crohn's Disease or Cancer can be one of the most significant challenges that any one person and their friends and family are likely to face. This course was designed to help you or someone you know dealing with a similar challenge learn how to develop your own "Team Positive", which proved to be a powerful tool for the wellness of all involved and backed by clinically proven approaches.

Team Positive Origins

Late in the year of 2013, my family faced two significant challenges.  One was my wife faced a significant challenge in dealing with a chronic illness and my father was diagnosed with cancer.   Both put a significant strain on not only the individuals with the health challenges but also affected all friends and family members involved with them.  

We all hope that the tools, references, articles and social posting board found within will benefit you and your family as you go through your challenge as well, hopefully with the same outcomes that we all had. 

This module is the blueprint that we all came up with along with some input from my background in mental health counseling and patient education which helped strengthen the support network not only for the two patients but for those supporting the patients.  

For the Patient


This resource has been designed to help you as you move through a quest, like most hero's from history's past, a quest you did not ask for.  The tools, articles, and exercises selected have been the ones we have found to be most useful, successful & meaningful.

For the Advocates


It is rare that a hero ever sets out on a quest all on her or his own, nor should this be the case.  With this in mind, this resource has also been designed to help those champions support their hero, something that, while needed, is often lacking and/or overlooked. 

For the Support Team

The Fellowship

Finally, how does the rest of the village interact, support and engage in such a way that supports the hero and the band of champions?   This resource offers suggestions and recommendations to help ensure the greatest positive outcome.
