3 Easy and Fun Ways to Show Your Support

We believe ostomy surgery can give someone a new chance at life and may actually help them live the life they want to live. With these three easy and fun ways to show support, join us by sharing your voice in building confidence and connection within the ostomy community.

Cook with Nude Dude Food

Join us for a virtual cooking class on October 3rd with private chefs Ryan Van Voorhis and Seth Bradley of Nude Dude Food, one of Chicago’s most sought after private dining and catering services. Ryan received his permanent ostomy after battling Crohn’s disease for several years. He learned early on how much his diet impacted his digestive health and made a commitment to eating well ever since.

Learn about OCS

We're All About Education

We believe knowledge is power – knowing more about living with an ostomy or the products and resources available to you can help empower you. This information can also help others better understand your experience. Check out these topics below.

Healthy Skin

Healthy skin around your stoma not only helps your pouching system adhere properly, but may also improve your quality of life. Taking special care to improve and preserve skin health may help you feel comfortable with your ostomy.

The Right Barrier

Living with an ostomy doesn’t mean you have to live with stoma fluid leakage or skin irritation. Your skin barrier fit plays a large role in your skin health experience. Learn how convex skin barriers work and what benefits they offer.

Personalized Support

You may have questions about your ostomy and how to keep on living the life you want to live, but you don’t have to figure it out on your own. Hollister Secure Start services offers free personalized ostomy support regardless of the brand of products you use.
