Hi Amy and welcome.
Congrats on your passion! My fiance (in two months, husband) is a new firefighter/EMT and has met another ff/EMT with Crohn's. I don't know if he has an ostomy or ileostomy, but I will ask for you!
...on a side note...the way I knew that my fiance had found the right 'fit' for him was when he decided to become a firefighter...he is absolutely the strongest person I've ever known; physically, mentally, emotionally, psychologically. If there's something too difficult for Matt to handle physically, he is strong enough mentally to get through it. His strength has honestly been what's helped me since I've been dx'd.
...You're the combination of that strength. The strength that is inherent in any firefighter--the thing that drives them to that passion of finding their 'fit' as a firefighter, and the strength that is inherent in someone who's overcome a very tough and bumpy road.
I am completely in awe of you.
