Patients & Survivors Stage II Colon Cancer Kentucky
Back to Champion Stories

Before being diagnosed, Kimberly was experiencing symptoms but did not trust her body. It took her seven months to receive her stage IIs colorectal cancer diagnosis in July 2015. She then received a lifesaving ostomy in November 2015, which she named "Toodles." Her advice to others is to trust your body. When something feels off, fiercely advocate for yourself.

I fight for more self-compassion. I want to see patients have more self-love, body positivity and self-acceptance/empowerment.
