Celebrate the Day in Your Way

For many people, ostomy surgery gives them a new chance at life. Their ostomy helps them manage challenging symptoms, provides stability to daily routines, and allows them to do things they could not do prior to illness. These positive outcomes are why we celebrate! Every person’s journey, experiences, and interests are unique. Here are some ways you can learn something new, show your support, or connect with others in the global ostomy community.

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.

Healthy Skin

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

Life Without Leakage

Living with an ostomy doesn’t mean you have to live with stoma fluid leakage or skin irritation. Your skin barrier fit combined with its ingredients play a large role in your skin health experience. For many, curved convex products can help. Learn how convex skin barriers work and what benefits they offer.

Peace of Mind

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 StartSM services offer free personalized ostomy care support regardless of the brand of products you use.
