    It Is The Challenges That You Face Every Day That Makes You Stronger with LeeAnne Hayden

    LeeAnne Hayden is a cancer survivor, podcast host, actor, and model that lives with a permanent colostomy.  At the age of 45, I survived a very rare form of cancer which left me in a colostomy for life. “It is the challenges that you face every day that makes you stronger”, is my motto. I will show you how to make fear your ally, not your enemy.
    Little did I know that these challenges I had faced would launch my life into another direction that I am forever grateful for. During this time, I had felt called to speak more about my Ostomy.  To bring awareness to this medical device that GAVE ME a second chance at life.
