As the director of the 3rd annual Arizona Ostomy Awareness Day picnic, I was excited to see our 5K event publish in the Phoenix Magazine in Feburary 2018. During this event, ostomates come together on the first Saturday of October each year to spread awareness and to let people know you can have fun living with an ostomy. We had so many great volunteers and I am so grateful for the help of the local high school students who came out from the red cross club.
To learn more about ostomies and to find resources for ostomates, visit the Unite Ostomy Association of America (UOAA) at www.ostomy.org
