It’s pretty much tradition that I highlight some of the standout moments of the year, so without further adieu, here’s what 2017 looked like!
I had the pleasure of visiting Orlando, Florida for both AIBD 2017 and the IBD Social Circle Summit.
October 24th isn’t a day I tend to celebrate as it marks the day I received my diagnosis for Crohn’s Disease back in 2008.
October 7th, 2017 – It’s another World Ostomy Day, and this year I’d like to discuss the truth about having an ostomy and ways to reach acceptance.
I had an opportunity to be on The IBD & Ostomy Support Show for a live stream on Sept 21, 2017.
My first year at HealtheVoices was an absolute blast!
2016 – What a crazy year for the world!
Between exploding Samsung Galaxy Note 7’s and surprise US election results, I’m sure this will be a year for the history books.
Dec 2016 – I was invited to spend a few days in Orlando, Florida to attend both the AIBD conference and the IBD Social Circle Summit with other IBD advocates.
I had the honor and privilege of being invited to speak at an ostomy education event in Vancouver, BC for World Ostomy Day this past October 1st, 2016.
I love “mind hacks”, that is, something you can do to make your brain think a little differently. You can use them to get motivated or to overcome a fear of doing something that you’re afraid to do, but I’ve applied a certain technique when it comes to viewing ostomies.
