All ostomates and potentials ostomates, need to view the following:www.uoaa.org/living_with_an_ostomy.shtml
It's a video about
ostomies put out by the UOAA (United Ostomates Assoc of America). It's esp important to me cos it includes several friends of mine - Lee Ann Barcus (the lady who is featured doing karate - one day we WILL get to meet up :) ) is a long time friend of mine, I also know Aileen Gould, Jason Cesari, Linda and Ken Auckett (pres of the UOAA), Kristen Knipp and Brenda Elsagher - Brenda is a comedienne and fabulous author and has sent me a copy of her book "If the Battle is Over, Why Am I Still In Uniform?'. She subsequently published a book "I'd Like to Buy A Bowel Please". All of them appear in the video.
The UOAA is trying to get the word out about
ostomies. I totally applaud them.
