Thank you for joining me on this ride of a lifetime. Patreon is a new way for people like me to reach other people like me who support my cause by paying a monthly fee for what I am planning on sharing. 
Your connection and support means the world to me. The experiences and knowledge I have acquired through my life are to be shared with the world and I am starting here with you. I will be sharing my triumphs, tears and learning curves with you. This space I am creating is to give you hope, guidance, insight and a community of support and understanding. 
Your support will be the catalyst into creating a movement to help others who have fallen through the cracks. This is the beginning of Trina's Triumph Foundation; to never leave anyone behind in the most crucial time in their lives. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your patronage! <3

Here is me in a nutshell:
I grew up as an only child, with my single mom who has a serious mental illness, which began when I was around 3 years old. Anxiety and depression have been present throughout most of my life. I have adapted, persevered and I would like to think I have turned out to be a pretty well rounded human considering everything I have endured. That being said, as I get older, my stress has manifested in my body as colitis and cancer as a result.  
In January 2014 I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, and in January 2015 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. To top it all off my husband and I separated on Feb 1, 2017 after being together for 23 years.
I had a double mastectomy January 2015; began 15 rounds of chemotherapy in April 2015; waited until October 2016 to begin the reconstruction process (because I wasn't planning on having boobs ever again) and completed reconstruction in Dec 2017. In June 2017 I had emergency total colectomy surgery, removing my whole large colon and leaving me with a reversible ileostomy. Now I have to powerfully choose... Do I have one more surgery to keep the bag and sew up my bum forever, or do I have two more surgeries and reverse the process and get a j pouch so I can go normally? Some people do not even have this choice to make. So I have powerfully chosen to have the two surgeries to reverse the ileostomy and get a j pouch on the inside created from my small intestine. I will be documenting my journey and would love for you to join me!
