Colostomy Day

 

 

#Superstoma 

 

The theme for Colostomy Day 2017 is being launched in the Spring issue of Tidings.  We are really excited to share it with you.

Colostomy Day will continue to focus on fighting the poo taboo by highlighting how super stomas are. There is still a stigma around stomas but many people would not be here today if they had not had life–saving surgery.

 Let’s celebrate how super stomas are.


How can you get involved?
 
Social Media
 
We want you to share your #superstoma across social media with a ‘thumbs up’. If you don’t fancy showing your stoma bag, or your friends and relatives want to join in you can just do a clothed thumbs up where the stoma bag is/would be and share. Let’s get #superstoma trending and celebrate how super they are.
 
 
Share your story
 
Celebrate your stoma and how it saved your life. We will be featuring stories across our website and social media, or you could share on your blog or let the local paper know. Let’s raise awareness of the different issues that lead to stoma surgery and highlight that anybody, any age, any background can have a stoma.
 
There are many more ways you can get involved. You might want to dress up as a superhero, do something active, raise some money or do a super good deed for someone.
 
Over the coming months we will be releasing more information about Colostomy Day and our packs will be available soon. You can register interest now by emailing clare.matthews@colostomyassocation.org.uk with the message subject Colostomy Day 2017.
