Stoma Stroll Awareness Walk
(Virtual Event)


Saturday, October 5, 2019, is Canada Ostomy Day. And the Ostomy Canada Society will host the 7th Annual Stoma Stroll Awareness Walk in various cities across Canada.
If you are interested in participating (virtually), you can join our Calgary team or make a donation at www.stomastroll.ca.
Be sure to order your free sticker from Hollister!

CANCELLED DUE TO WEATHER!

Are you looking for advice or support for your ostomy? Wellspring Carma House graciously provides the Calgary Ostomy Society a private and peaceful environment for our Small Support Group. This is a great opportunity to chat, vent, laugh, cry and receive support and advice from other ostomates who can relate.

If you wish to attend, please contact us  with your ostomy type so we can ask for a member with a urostomy, colostomy or ileostomy to attend. Spouses are also welcome.

Ostomy Donation Packup

Friends of Ostomates Worldwide (FOWC) sends donations to countries around the world with limited access to ostomy supplies. Donations come from ET nurses, hospitals, people who have changed to a new product, deceased ostomates, vendors and retailers. You are welcome to bring any donations you’d like to contribute.
This will involve a day of hard work, (lifting, standing, etc.), at the CB Medical Warehouse. We unpack boxes of ostomy supply donations, sort them out according to type (colostomy, urostomy, 1-piece & 2-piece systems, etc.), and repack for shipment.
Lunch will be provided. It will run from 9am to 4pm but any hours you are able to provide are welcome.

For more info about FOWC, please view their website: http://www.fowc.ca/
