Summary, etc.: Meet Dana, a feisty, funny, and charming 25-year-old at a crossroads... but not the kind you might expect. Dana lives with Crohn's Disease so severe that she battles every single day-it is unrelenting and she has been fighting it nearly all her life. Spending as much time in the hospital as out, Dana depends on intravenous nutrition, constant vigilance and a wicked sense of humor to keep her alive. Now she faces the daunting task of deciding how she wants to live the rest of her life-coping with the limitations and rigors of her current routine or taking a leap of faith on a complicated transplant that could give her a chance at the normal life she has never known. SEMICOLON; THE ADVENTURES OF OSTOMY GIRL follows Dana and her unique family in the harrowing months leading up to the biggest decision she has ever had to make--one that can have life-altering consequences. Through it all, Dana, aka Ostomy Girl, confronts each challenge with dignity, grace, and gut-busting humor. Her story is an awe-inspiring testament to the triumph of tenacity and the human spirit in the face of grave adversity.
