Hi, my name is Angela, I live in Southern Maine with my husband and 3 beautiful children.
I am very excited to be part of the Patient Champion Program. My role, however, is unique because I am not an ostomy patient. My daughter Kaitlyn has Crohn’s disease and underwent temporary ileostomy surgery in 2017 following a bad flare and negative reactions to medications.
Since that time I have been her primary care giver and we have been a team with everything that has come along with having an ostomy including now being Patient Champions! We are very excited and feel blessed for the opportunity to help others in a similar situation.
