BENEFITTING NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION

The Ostomy Awareness Foundation, Inc. is a New Milford 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that mentors, educates, supports and empowers ostomates of all diversions, as well as offer services and guidance to family members, caregivers and members of the medical community. We work with ostomates of all ages and from all stages of illness. This includes pre-op and immediate post-op surgery care, and those who seek long-term assistance for continuing education and emotional support.
Through support networks, speaking engagements, social media and community programs, we help ostomates navigate their journey while encouraging them to realize their full potential. We also advocate for client rights and strive to eliminate misconceptions and stereotypes related to ostomy that exist for ostomates and in the public.
An ostomy is a life-saving surgery that removes a diseased area due to cancer, Crohn’s Disease, ulcerative colitis (UC), inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), birth defects and many other medical conditions. It is the end result of a surgical procedure that diverts the normal path for waste to exit the body via a new opening. There are three main types of ostomy: colostomy, ileostomy and urostomy.
