About Ostomy Buddy
Hi, I’m the Ostomy Buddy! I joined the Shadow Buddies Foundation to be a teaching tool for healthcare professionals and a friend for your child who’s “just like me.” Learning to live with an ostomy can be tricky at first, but your child or loved one can quickly begin to adapt – with my help! I provide comfort and confidence, whether it’s learning how to change their bag or just knowing that others have ostomies too.
I have a stoma with a detachable pouch and I’ll come individually packaged with a brightly colored gown, heart-shaped eyes for love and a great big smile!
