Aspiring Model Takes A Brave Stand
Bethany Townsend has dealt with Crohn’s Disease for her whole life and all the medical hardships that come with the disease, including being outfitted with two colostomy bags.
As an aspiring model, this discouraged Townsend. She was self-conscious about the bags, even when she was around her husband. For years she concealed her figure, until one day she decided to embrace her body.
On vacation in Mexico with her husband, she took a picture of herself in a bikini, colostomy bags and all, and posted it on Facebook and then sent it to the Crohn's and Colitis UK Facebook page. It's gone viral and now Townsend serves as an example of people dealing with the disease.
Way to go Bethany!
