Informal Discussion and Peer Support
We are here to offer support. Although we do not offer medical advice, we do share our personal ostomy experiences, practical tips, and insight to make life a little easier for others.
We speak from the heart. This is a judgment free zone, and there are no "silly" questions. It is an excellent place to make new friends.
Discussion topics have included: Living with a Urostomy, Who, What, and When to "Tell," Travel Tips, Ostomy Fashion, (and much much more!)
We love to have guest speakers share their expertise.
From the medical community, we have been fortunate to welcome surgeons and wound care nurses.
Manufacturer "reps" visit to tell us about the latest new ostomy products.
To provide great advice to enhance our every day lives, we've had programs from nutritionists and physical fitness instructors.
Occasionally, we like to combine a little work and play.
We'll all pitch in to collate information packets, sort supply donations, or take part in a health fair.
We'll participate in a Visitor Training Class or fundraiser.
And sometimes, we'll meet just for fun at a new restaurant.
