SHARE YOUR STORY

People have an ostomy for lots of different reasons, and they all have a story to tell. We think that’s something worth sharing. 

OC celebrates ostomates who use their story to help others. Every single experience is worth learning from. We're here to ensure their voices are heard because we believe what ostomates say and how they feel matters.

Choose an article series that resonates with you.

ANONYMOUS RANT

 We let ostomates groan and gripe about things that irk them. Because screaming into the void is sometimes necessary.  

LIVE BOLDLY

When someone says “live boldly” what does it mean to you? To us, it means living with purpose, with intention, and without reservations. An ongoing series is about never letting an ostomy hold you back.
