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.
Share your story
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!
Share tips with the community
Are there any tips or tricks that you have learned from your experience? Share your tips with our community members who might not be aware.
Spread ostomy awareness!
Whether you are living with an ostomy or not, show off your stoma sticker! Hollister sends stoma stickers all year round. Take a photo and share it on social media.
Thank you for sharing your experiences with us- we know that everyone is different when it comes to Crohn's, UC, and ostomies.
Will you take our In America survey to help others understand the true impact of Crohn's and UC?
