Happy National Ostomy Awareness Day!

July 25, 2010

Today, July 25th, is the UOAA’s first National Ostomy Awareness Day! Here is more information about it from their page:

UOAA is proud to announce its 1st National Ostomy Awareness Day! Let’s celebrate by spreading awareness and increasing national visibility of those living with ostomies. We will break the silence and shine a positive light on what has saved so many lives.

There are many ways to participate in this event.
• Change your profile picture to the UOAA logo
• Change your Facebook status to the day’s slogan:

“Ostomates Unite and Help Place The Ostomy In A Positive Light! Celebrate UOAA’s Ostomy Awareness Day!”

You can also:
• Tweet the slogan above with #ostomyday
• Blog about the event
• Talk to your family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers

Facebook. Tweet. Blog. Speak.
