Is Your Ostomy a Life-Saver? Share Your Experiences, Good or Bad
National Ostomy Awareness Day is on Saturday, October 3. The United Ostomy Associations of America is celebrating with the theme: "Ostomies are Life-Savers." Do you agree? What's your experience been?
Help us to recognize this day by sharing your experiences with others! Weigh in on the following polls to let others know what your experience has been, whether it's good or bad.

How has your ostomy experience been?

Sharing your story is a great way to help raise awareness of Crohn's, ulcerative colitis, other types of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and ostomies. Everyone with IBD is unique but the more representations of the disease we see, the more we understand!
