I am a 3 time cancer survivor and permanent colostomate since august of 2007; it has been a long hard road filled with a lot of pain, sickness and surgeries but I am in remission and feeling healthy. I am even training again in boxing and mixed martial arts and hope to compete again in boxing sometime in the near future. I know it can be tough going through this thing, and sometimes I feel really isolated and different than other people so I joined this site not for the internet dating aspect but to make a few new friends and chat with people who know what I have been/am going through. I also want to express to others that this surgery is not the end of the world; it can give you a new lease on life and the opportunity to still chase down your dreams. There is nothing you cannot still do if you put your mind to it. Love and respect always, - D

...I'm here to meet people who have gone through similar circumstances as I have. Sense of humor and a positive outlook on life are always good traits to have though. I like to meet people who take life serious enough but not too seriously. People like me who understand how fleeting and how fragile it can be. I am a non-judgemental and honest person who is down to meet anyone as long as they are respectful and cool to talk to.
