Welcome to My Personal Page!

I have decided to do my first 5k! I am participating in the 2018 B&O Yorkville Run to support Ostomy Toronto.

Those who know me well, know that I have a permanent ileostomy due to Crohn’s. I have been in remission since 1999, when I had a life changing surgery. For years, I did well on my own, with minor bumps along the way. When I went to my first Ostomy Toronto meeting in 2011, my intention was to help others and give back to the Ostomy community but what I didn’t know was that I needed that extra support in my life too. Now, I am a proud member & supporter of OT for over 7 years.

The money raised from this event will help fund resources and meetings to support people living with ostomies, their friends, families, & caregivers in the GTA.

For over 50 years, volunteers at Ostomy Toronto have worked diligently to ensure people with ostomies in our community have an improved quality of life.

Please pledge and help me reach my fundraising goal! Online pledging is secure and it saves money by reducing administrative costs.

Thank you for your support!
