Amber Wallace (Ostomy Diaries)

Patient Leader

I'm Amber! I have Crohn's disease and had a complete colectomy. I now live life with an ostomy bag, and a huge smile. I desire to use humor and light heartedness to help educate and encourage other Ostomates. I want my YouTube channel, and other social media platforms to be a place where patients can learn, and be encouraged to live their life to the fullest. Life without a colon and with a bag is pretty rad, and I like showing people that! I spent over 50 days at the University of Tennessee Medical Center. Over 20 in the ICU. Crohn's Disease, blood transfusions, C Diff, a colectomy, and a blood clot were how I spent the summer of 2016. I want to use my experience and motivation to help other people!
