Laura Piercey is a TUF supporter who speaks out about urology issues.

Aged just 24 her bladder suddenly stopped working. This means that she will constantly need a catheter to empty it and has a suprapubic catheter, inserted directly into the bladder through the abdomen for this.
Laura uses Instagram (@diduseehercatheter) to share what life with a catheter is like and connect with others in a similar situation. She hopes that it will help to break down the stigma that she has encountered.

She wrote the an article on her Instagram account earlier this year about the impact that the lack of public toilets, a problem that is growing with more and more closures, has on the lives of people suffering with a urology condition.
