Every person with an ostomy has a story to tell. The ostomy support group provides a safe, caring place to tell your story among people who understand and share your experiences and feelings.
Family members and people considering an ostomy are also welcome. The group offers education, encouragement and support to anyone whose life is affected by an ostomy.
The Youngstown area ostomy support group meets from 6–7 pm on the second Tuesday of every month from March to December.
In odd numbered months (March, May, etc.), we meet in Austintown at 755 Ohltown Road, Youngstown, OH (map).
In even numbered months (April, June, etc.), we meet in Boardman at 8401 Market St, Boardman, OH (map), Azalea Room.
