Patient Leader

I'm the host of the IBD & ostomy support show. I run this with 4 other ladies and we discuss all aspects of IBD and stomas, ileostomy, colostomy and Urostomy. We cover everything that's considered as taboo or the help isn't available. I myself have had penatrating Crohns disease for 14 years and now have a permanent ileostomy due to repercussions of alot of surgery. I advocate and blog at crohnsfighting. Com and help and give advice across Twitter. Facebook and Instagram. We are hoping this show is received well and helps other people with their struggles through ibd and stoma life

Always raising awareness of an invisible illness and offering support to others online.  — Sophie

I take part in the show from time to time and for me personally it's the best thing Louise has brought to my life and others that do the show. So many people like me are benefiting from it, from the comfort of their own home. Talking about important issues that comes along with illness. Louise has done amazing and has supported me so much.
