How is 2014 already gone?? In remembrance of this great past year, I recount some of my favorite posts from 2014!

To all my #ostomy  friends: I have had the amazing privilege of getting to hear from many of you over the years and learn about your stories of overcoming, adjustment, learning, acceptance... I would love to feature some of your stories on The Stolen Colon as a part of #OstoMYstory .  Would any of you be interested in sharing your stories? Send me an email to stephanie@stolencolon.com and I'd love to discuss it with you!
