Ostomates Making “Great Comebacks”

As a boy, I liked underdogs. I was a fan of the San Diego Chargers who had Rolf Benirschke as their fantastic placekicker. I remember, more than once, watching Rolf kick a game ­winning field goal. Rolf snatched a victory in the last seconds from the jaws of defeat. What I didn’t know at the time was that Rolf suffered from severe Crohn’s disease.

World Ostomy Day 2015 – Celebrating Together

In the United States, the United Ostomy Associations of America (UOAA) will be hosting 5K and virtual 5K runs to celebrate. The runs are part of the #wannawearone movement.  The purpose of these events is to encourage and promote healthy lifestyles for ostomates.

Touring America with Drive for Men’s Health

For the second straight year, StomaCloak has partnered with the Drive for Men’s Health Team in an effort to help raise ostomy awareness. This year’s Drive was a 6,000-mile journey across the United States from Florida to New York City and then across the United States to Los Angeles, California.

Sharing StomaCloak at the Mini Maker Fair

Having the honor of presenting StomaCloak at professional venues is always inspiring. As StomaCloak President and a retired ostomy nurse, I always look forward to meeting colleagues in the field of patient advocacy and sharing information.
