Talya Feeling Ostomistic

Patient Leader

I started my blog early 2013 when I was 21, after learning I had early stages of bowel cancer and required my entire large bowel to be removed. I was struggling to find information relatable for a young female living with a stoma and thought I mightn't be the only one feeling alone. So I started my blog in hopes of sharing my journey to help others. I am terminal with cancer, so I am living my life to the fullest and enjoying each day. I have a bucket list of things I want to do and having fun trying to achieve those. One thing I was proud to launch was "The Ostomistic Life" a first of it's kind online magazine dedicated to young ostomates to help them navigate life with an ostomy.
