The Inside Word

Personal stories from some of our NZ Ostomates

“Although the last 45 years have been a trial in many ways, life must go on, and being one who will not be beaten.”

“I feel like my independence is back and I can even start wearing shorts again and go to the gym (carefully)… roll on summer!!”

“I’ve been through it and have survived this journey.  I can be a voice to help others know it’s going to be ok and they can live a full life.”


Looking for people going through the same thing you are?

Whether you’re an Ostomate yourself or family member, we’d love to have you on board.
