Whether it be a colostomy, Ileostomy or urostomy, the fact is stoma surgery saves and improves lives. People with stomas work, play, have children, raise families and run marathons, but still there is a stigma attached to having to having one. We need to change this.
Colostomy Day is our opportunity to raise awareness, challenge perceptions and show the world what it actually means to live with a stoma. Whether it was because of cancer, crohns, ulcerative colitis, or trauma to the bowel, we need to tell people that stoma surgery made the difference.
Join us on Saturday 7th October for Colostomy Day – our national awareness day – where super stomas are the theme. It’s time to celebrate and tell the world just how great they are!
We are Colostomy UK. Here if you have questions, need support or just want to talk to someone who lives with a stoma. Your voice on the bigger issues: advocates for your rights and campaigning to raise awareness of what matters to you; running projects to empower you; building communities to support you.
