The 20-year-old face of Uncover Ostomy
proves that ostomates are from all walks of life and can be any age -- even 20-somethings. Jessica Grossman is a Canadian model and actress who was diagnosed with Crohn's disease at the age of 9 and had ileostomy surgery at age 13. She is now the spokeswoman and blogger for Uncover Ostomy
, a partnership with IDEAS (Intestinal Disease Education and Awareness Society)
Jessica is outspoken about her ostomy and promoting awareness about the 1 in 700 Canadians who are ostomates. Stop by her blog, follow her on Twitter (http://twitter.com/JessGrossman), or friend her on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/uncoverostomy).
