I've been through a lot like a lot of you guys and gals. I wanted some way of thanking the community for all the support I received during the JPouch days and now during my ostomy years to come ...
I volunteered myself to redesign the Broward Ostomy Association website. Please don't get me wrong, I'm not a web designer or a master at all. It's just fun and honestly I am a little proud of it.
Thanks everyone for your support and here's the website ...
