Non-medical lifestyle classes facilitated at no cost by Ostomate volunteers & collaborated by a WOCN. These classes will equip you with the information and resources you need to live a vibrant, confident life after ostomy surgery.
I want to thank you for this excellent class. All the material presented was hugely informative & encouraging. I came to the class feeling down. I left feeling like this was going to be fine. I CAN DO THIS!
You're not alone

We are these people. We're not medical professionals - we are REAL people living full lives with an ostomy.
