  • Ostomy Awareness Day 2016

    National Ostomy Awareness Day began in 2010. It is held annually on the first Saturday of October. UOAA continues to celebrate this day by spreading awareness and increasing national visibility of those living with ostomies. We will carry on breaking the silence and shining a positive light on what has saved so many lives. We are excited to announce this year’s theme is Resilience: “Bouncing Back into Life”, and is all about finding your inner strength to bounce back from this surgery and rise up stronger than ever before.
