Continence Foundation of Australia youth spokesperson, Anja Christoffersen, has recorded a message to coincide with World Continence Week.
Anja is a 20 year-old Brisbane based model, author, motivational speaker and advocate. Anja also lives with VACTERL Association – a disorder that causes incontinence.
In the video, Anja discusses living with incontinence and how she has come to reshape her thinking around her condition:
“I made the decision to not be defined by my diagnosis but in fact redefine what it means to be disabled, chronically ill and incontinent."
“In a world where we are sharing more than ever, we are still missing those important conversations that break the stigma and shame surrounding incontinence and certain disabilities.”
