My Story

Welcome to my fundraising page!

As you may or may not know, I have had an ileostomy since August 2016, as a result of a perforated colon due to colon cancer.  After two surgeries at that time, I no longer have a colon or a spleen, and I only have 40% of my small intestine.

This year, I have made a commitment to spend Ostomy Awareness Day, Saturday, October 3rd, as part of a virtual group of people who are empowering people who have had or who will have ostomy or continent diversion surgery. In order to fulfill this commitment, I am asking for your help.

On October 3, 2020, I will participate in the Virtual Run For Resilience Ostomy 5k. This is more than just a 5k race for me. The goal of these events is to raise awareness and to empower people who have had or who may some day have ostomy or continent diversion surgery. Funds will support United Ostomy Associations of America (UOAA), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that makes a difference in the lives of the 725,000 to 1 million Americans who have had ostomy or continent diversion surgery. These surgeries are life-saving, and have allowed many people to return to living a healthy life.

I am writing to share my story, and to ask you to support me as I train to participate in this 5k race. To find out more about the Run For Resilience Ostomy 5k please visit, and to learn more about UOAA please visit

I have set my fundraising goal at $ 100. You can help me achieve this goal and help me pay tribute to those who need our help. Please support my fundraising campaign by clicking the donate link to sponsor my efforts in meeting my fundraising goal, or click Register to join me!

Thank you for your support. Not only will you be helping me reach my goal, but you will help each and every person who has had or who may one day have ostomy or continent diversion surgery.
