Hi, my name is Ryan and I have Crohn’s disease, which has resulted in an ileostomy. I enjoy writing, reading, and being active. You can find me swimming and even participating in triathlons, all with an ostomy! My goal as a Patient Coach is to help those who may feel in a dark place right now by coaxing them into the light. Surgery is not easy, but I want others to know that they can get through it.
