Just before Lockdown Barbara who is a stoma nurse specialist was approached by one of her patients t0 get involved with Ovacome. As lockdown happened it was decided to set up a stoma support group for Ovarian cancer ladies, allowing them a safe and secure place to talk about life with a stoma. This was a facilitated group and it was an complete success.
We meet virtually once a month and always welcome new members. It has given these ladies a peer support group as well as access to specialist stoma advice from Barbara if needed.
As this is a charity we would like to raise awareness of the fantastic work Ovacome does and help the charity to continue making a difference to peoples lives.
We are climbing Scafel Pike in Sept 2022 to raise funds for Ovacome. Barbara Milleret
