Patient Leader

Crohn's disease tried to eat my colon. We battled but I won, and my prize was a stoma. I talk about it on YouTube to help raise awareness of Crohn's disease and what it's like to live with an ostomy bag. I created the #Ostomonday hashtag which encourages others to talk about their experiences with a stoma. I also support many charities dedicated to improving the lives of those with IBD or have a stoma.
