I’m finally, semi, settled back into life since being back from the UOAA ostomy conference in Reno. It was a great 5 days full of amazing people, seminars, fun events, and food (so much good food!) Positive ostomy energy was everywhere! While I was there, I helped...

I just wanted to take the time to send a shout out to John on his birthdayyy For those who don't know who John is, he is what I like to call, the "producer" of Uncover Ostomy. He was the one who helped me build the concept...
