I’m Sarah, and I have an ileostomy because of a condition called Chronic Intestinal Pseudo Obstruction. I’ve lived with my ostomy since I was 3 weeks old, so I don’t really know life without it! I have a Bichon Frisch puppy named Faith, I love figure skating, and I’m a trauma nurse. I became a patient coach because being chronically ill with an ostomy all my life, I feel like I can give back and help others going through similar adversities.
