This blog is an open and honest account of my journey
with 2 stoma bags.

Through spreading my story and baring all I hope to inspire, empower and support fellow ostomates to do the same and ROCK IT. My aim is to make publicly aware that ostomys or stomas are not just formed. My vision is to create a community of Fellow ostomates that ALL have different types of stomas. By supporting and identifying with each other we share our experience, strength and hope. Together we can strive to actively promote the awareness of urostomies and achieve the same amount of recognition that colostomy and ileostomies have.
