We’d like you to meet our newest AccessAble champion, Natalie Gardner, who is helping to spread the word about AcccessAble and the vital work we do.
Hi, I'm Natalie. I am 34, a mum to 2 boys and the owner of several chronic illnesses. I was diagnosed with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis at 15 months of age and have iritis which is an eye condition linked to that. I also have Crohn's Disease for which I have an ileostomy called Stanley.
I enjoy reading, cross-stitch and going on adventures. My blog, The Spoonie Mummy, is all about life and parenting with chronic illnesses. I am also a student with the Open University and am studying for a degree in Psychology.
I am really excited to be working with AccessAble and can't wait to share some of my favourite places to go. It is great to be representing the ostomy community and I am looking forward to helping others with bowel diseases and ostomies to feel more confident when getting out and about.
