History of a grateful patient day is the proud patient day of the United States

Rolf Benirschke, a football player, was involved in a match on Sunday. But more importantly, he fought his own personal battle against ulcerative colitis, ostomy surgery, and Hepatitis C—from his numerous blood transfusions. It almost cost him his life. He came as a patient who dedicated his life to patient advocacy. Rolf became passionate about advancing science and innovation related to future therapies.

Rolf's remarkable and nearly impossible comeback to the NFL after his injury was September 7, 1980. The Chargers defeated the Seattle Seahawks 34-13 thanks to his two field goals and four extra points.
