The Stolen Colon | Stephanie

Patient Leader

Hey, I'm Stephanie and I am living with a permanent ileostomy due to Crohn's disease. I put off having the surgery for a long time because I was scared of what life with an ostomy would be like. My goal of starting The Stolen Colon was to make the thought of living with an ostomy less scary for others. It's not always easy, but it's not the end, either.

Stephanie raises questions and discusses topics that she has intimate knowledge of as a patient & gives very real world information & answers. Crohn's & UC are hard diseases to talk about, she makes them easy & real. She is relatable & an open book for fellow patients & caregivers. Stephanie advocates for each person to do what is best for them.  — Elizabeth
