I have loved seeing all of the ostomy love this week! It’s been great being a part of the sharing of information and spreading of awareness. And it’s not over yet!
This Friday, October 2, I have the awesome opportunity to co-host a Twitter chat with the CCFA as a precursor to World Ostomy Day. We are going to have a great panel of participants, including a colorectal surgeon, a dietician and representatives from the United Ostomy Association and the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation.
We will be discussing everything from basic ostomy information to details about surgery and recovery, as well as chatting about what it’s like to live with an ostomy. I would love it if you could join us. The chat will be held from 1:00-2:00 PM EST this Friday. You can follow along using #OstomyChat. You can also follow me on Twitter to see all of my tweets.
Please feel free to join in the chat by submitting questions or sharing some of your experiences using the same hashtag. And spread the word! I’d love for this to be able to reach some people who might not know much about ostomies and they can come away with a new understanding of what one is and what it’s like to live with one. After all, isn’t that what World Ostomy Day is all about? Chat with you Friday!
