Ostomy friendships have been an unexpected blessing in my life. I owe so much to my fellow ostomates, and they have saved my life in ways they may never know. I’m so isolated in person, and ostomy friends are my lifeline. I can trust them and share life no matter how far away they are. They are irreplaceable and fabulous.
I can’t believe I’m lucky enough to know the great people I’ve met because of our ostomies. They pull me out of my darkest times, help me serve other ostomates better, and they help me feel free and relaxed. I do not deserve such patient, kind, wonderful friends, so I am deeply grateful. I even met some of the Stealth Belt team as friends first before I ended up as part of the squad! I love working with all sorts of people to promote ostomy awareness and education. Some of my brilliant friends speak to members of the medical field and legislature, and I will be sure to join in on the fun
