Putting Your Donation to Work
for the Next New Ostomate
Every day new ostomates or their caregivers call UOAA’s information line desperate to be heard and helped. UOAA’s staff are here to give them direction, support and resources.
In 2023 over 1,870 calls were answered, and we assisted 606 people who reached out to us through the website. We also shipped 29,440 of our educational resources to ostomates, medical professionals and Affiliated Support Groups across the country
With your donation, you are ensuring UOAA is here for advocacy, peer-support and to answer the next call or email and provide the resources that can change an ostomate’s life.
Thanks to our generous donors who gave during our recent Double Up Donation Drive. It was a huge success, and we exceeded our $50,000 goal by more than $9,000! Support from this unique matching program will help turn what a new ostomate or their caregiver may believe is a hopeless situation into a positive outcome.
