Colostomy Day - 9 myths of having a stoma

Sep 30, 2016

Colostomy Day is a national awareness day on Saturday 1st October to help tackle some of the issues faced by people in the UK who live with a stoma.

Around 1 in 500 people in the UK currently live with a stoma but it still remains a little-understood condition to the general public.

The theme for Colostomy Day 2016 is ‘Fight the Poo Taboo’ and to help tackle the stigma of having a stoma we are asking people across the UK to speak out or go silent for Colostomy Day.

As part of our awareness raising activities for #colostomyday we are dispelling the 9 myths of having a stoma.

Take a look, share and help us #fightthepootaboo
