Welcome to the Ostomy Association of Greater Orlando

eBooks

The Ostomy Association of Greater Orlando is a strong and positive, non-profit support group.  We are a wonderfully diverse group - all ages, genders, ethnicities, religions, professions, interests, and…ostomies!  Some of our members have ileostomies, some colostomies, some urostomies, and some are “double baggers.” We may have earned our stomas through birth anomalies, diverticulitis, Crohns, cancer, injuries, or other causes. Some of us have had our “stomas” for over fifty years, and some of us are anticipating diversion surgery or revision surgery.

 

We are also a group of mothers, fathers, children, spouses, home health care workers, and even friends who have stepped into the role of caretaker in the most positive way.  In addition, some of us are members of the medical profession – doctors, nurses, and members of health management teams. Regardless of who we are or how we got here, we have banded together for support.

 

  • We offer emotional, mental, and social support and understanding through our meetings and other interesting activities. We don’t judge or preach; there are no “dumb” questions.
  • We offer educational and informational support through our affiliation with UOAA (United Ostomy Association of America), our website, and our newsletter.
  • We offer philanthropic support through our visitor’s program, gift room, and Youth Rally scholarships.

 

Please get to know us even better by joining us at our next meeting and let us get to know you!

Sincerely,
Erica Michaels
OAGO President
