Way to go Eric! And win or loose... there are no losers here. You have helped me and I think hundreds of us ( thousands maybe?) through this and life going forward. Good luck.

Absolutely, Dona. It's an honor to even be considered. 

But a win could bring a lot of exposure to ostomates and help to raise more awareness for people who have one. That's what I'm hoping for :)
