- In my own words:
Hi there, I lived with ulcerative colitis for 25 years and four years ago was unfortunately diagnosis's with colon cancer.
I have a partial colon resection and received chemotherapy and then got well. I never needed an illiostomy. However, three months ago I was told I needed to have this surgery done to prevent me from having a secondary colon cancer develop. I'm a model and do fitness completions and I'm devastated.
Scared and depressed. At this point I don't see past it.
I love to spend time with my kids. I enjoy to garden, exercise, run, train at the gym, I enjoy canoeing, cooking,
