Ostomy supplies can be costly and very hard for some people to afford. In an effort to support World Ostomy Day and Ostomy Awareness Day the Parthenon Company is offering a special money saving coupon to new and current customers for the 2012 World Ostomy Day and Ostomy Awareness Day. On October 6, 2012 the United Ostomy Associations of America (UOAA) and ostomy groups around the world will celebrate this life saving surgery. The theme for World Ostomy Day 2012 is “Let’s Be Heard” and it marks a day of celebration for those with ostomies and their family, friends, and caregivers. Also, this day helps the public better understand what it is to have ostomy surgery and the life saving benefits it offers hundreds of thousands of people around the world.
According to the UOAA, there are over 700,000 people with ostomies in the United States and over 100,000 people have the surgery each year. A variety of medical conditions can require one to have ostomy surgery such as Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, Gunshot/stabbing, and colon cancer. Manfuacturers of ostomy products offer a wide variety of items to accommodate almost anyone. Nick Mihalopoulos, Parthenon CEO, is quick to state, “a person can even have their ostomy pouch custom made for them from Nu-Hope Laboratories.”
Chances are you can locate some type of event in your area to commemorate this special day. Ostomy support groups, Wound Ostomy Continence Nurses (WOCN), product manufacturers and distributors are doing their part to celebrate. To find out more about events visit the UOAA website.
