Ostomy Shadow Buddies

Learn about Ostomy Shadow Buddy dolls, which can help children through the experience of ostomy surgery.

Our long-term partnership with the Shadow Buddies Foundation is continuing to help children with ostomies around the world. A soft, cuddly Ostomy Shadow Buddy doll can be a friend who’s “just like me” for your pediatric patients.

The Shadow Buddies Foundation is a charity dedicated to providing support and knowledge to children with severe illnesses and disabilities. Condition-specific Shadow Buddies dolls are teaching tools for healthcare professionals, and can provide comfort and confidence for children undergoing ostomy surgery.

Ostomy Shadow Buddies are available exclusively through sponsorship from Hollister Incorporated.
