Acknowledgements
“Bjerke’s poignant creative work gives the person living with an ostomy, supportive family and friends, and involved professionals provocative insight into the reality of this life-altering process. It invites, equips, and informs all to participate in this gut-wrenching process in a heartfelt manner.”—Lana R. M. Chandler, RN, BS 
“With dark humor, irony, compassion, and keen sense of self, Bjerke navigates through the different personas of rectal cancer survivor, medical patient, healer, and most importantly, artist, to produceHidden Agenda, a work that is the cure for cynicism and despair. Her work is about transformation. We are gutted but we go on.”—Patrick Nagatani, rectal cancer survivor and professor emeritus, University of New Mexico
