Read Our Patient Stories Below:
My story began when, at age 56, I discovered that I had late-stage colorectal cancer.
I was told if I didn’t have the surgery when I did, my Crohn’s disease would have killed me. Surgery made a drastic change in my life for the better.
Saying that my ostomy gave me my life back is not an understatement.
