A Message of Hope by Joanne Heitzman
Although Joanne tragically lost her battle with leimyosarcoma, she left an inspiring and detailed description of how she accepted and dealt with a very radical surgery – total pelvic exenteration. She got a colostomy as well as an Indiana pouch to replace her bladder. This pamphlet is a valuable resource for anyone facing this surgery or one that will forever change your life.
