From Carolyn Brown, Cameroon:
Jacques is a young school teacher who was diagnosed with bladder cancer. My husband did an ileal conduit on him, so he now has a urostomy. They seem to have gotten all the cancer and he is doing very well. We are always encouraged to see how well he’s doing when he comes back to get supplies. Last year, you sent some [belts]. We usually save those kinds of things for our long-term ostomates and gave him one. He was so very happy. He has to ride some distance on a motorcycle to get to school each day, Of course the roads are not paved or level and he does a lot of bouncing around. Having this belt helps him feel more secure. He mentions it every time he returns.
