Our May meeting will feature two incredible “member” guest speakers: Kay Cobb and Karen Costa.

In a previous newsletter, we were introduced to Karen and her son Andrew. Learning to care for a child with an ostomy can be a challenge to say the least, but learning to adapt to the needs of a child who is entering puberty can take on another aspect altogether. We are looking for ideas – practical, creative, solutions to help make Andrew (and Karen’s) life a little easier!

Many of us struggle with intestinal issues long before our ostomies (Crohn’s, diverticulitis, cancer…) and therefore we have some idea of what an ostomy is and what to expect. But, for some of us, ostomies can be a new reality we “wake up” to, as a result of an accident or traumatic event. Kay will share with us how the split second of a gunshot changed her life.

Location "AdventHealth Winter Park" (Formerly known as Winter Park Memorial Hospital)
