The first Saturday in October is traditionally Ostomy Awareness Day: A worldwide celebration of #OstomateVoices and a chance to raise awareness of life with a stoma.
At Dansac, we want to empower people to overcome the physical, social, and psychological challenges of living with a stoma. Together, we can help remove the stigma of having a stoma and give someone a new chance at life.
Every person has a story, and every story matters. Share yours on social media using the hashtags #OAD2023 and #OstomateVoices. You can also submit your story to be contacted about becoming a future Stoma Hero and having your story featured in a future email newsletter.
Sometimes a few kind words are all it takes to brighten someone’s day – or your own!
Our affirmation cards are a wonderful way to spread positive thinking, calm, and confidence. Download your free card today. You can use it for a personal pick-me-up and share it on social media to enhance the well-being of others!
We are proud to support the Colostomy UK Step Up for Stomas 7K challenge. From 1st September, run, walk, skip, jog, or dance 7,000 steps a day until Ostomy Awareness Day.
In our dedication to stoma care, we’ve learned how important it is to keep sight of the whole person and what matters most to them, their loved ones, and the clinicians who care for them.
Having a stoma is a big change in a person's life. How to deal with it depends on your situation. The information and support you need may differ from what others need.
You are so much more than your stoma, but experiencing sore skin can make it tough to focus on the rest of you. That’s why keeping healthy skin around your stoma is so important. Our TRE™ products provide three levels of protection that work together to keep skin naturally healthy.
Whether you’re a patient, a caregiver, or a healthcare professional, our Secure StartSM services team can help. Contact us with any questions about stoma care topics, our products, or how to use them.
We are here to support you on Ostomy Awareness Day and every other day. Sign up to receive our email newsletters to receive personal stories about people living with a stoma along with other educational tips and resources.
If you are passionate about contributing to help us make product improvements or new ideas come to life, we encourage you to learn more about the research and feedback programs we offer.
