"I never hid the fact that I had a stoma: talking about it and telling people is what got me through"
"Partners are often forgotten...we are here as the rock for our loved ones to stand on."
Sarah....Research Scientist, wife and busy mum of two tells her story of how she is living with her Colostomy
"It's a long recovery process but humour definitely helped me get through the tough times"
"I felt that life as we knew it had come to an end...how wrong could I be?"
The Colostomy Association is a national charity that provides support, reassurance and practical advice to anyone who has or is about to have a colostomy in the UK. We believe that everyone with a colostomy should be able to live a full and active life
We are here to help and support you, your family and carers.
Our 24/7 helpline offers advice and support and our volunteers, who all have a colostomy, will listen and provide reassurance.
Our wide range of informative booklets, quarterly magazine and Facebook group provide support to anyone affected by stoma surgery.
It is estimated that 1 in every 500 people in the UK live with a stoma. By raising awareness and campaigning nationwide we aim to end the stigma of having a colostomy
