Ostomy Association of Oklahoma City

The Ostomy Association of Oklahoma City support group meetings are held the second Saturday of the odd numbered months at 2 pm. The meetings are held at Vox Printing, 4000 East Britton Road in OKC (see map). This is on Britton Road 1/8 mile East of I-35, south side of the road. The building sets off the road up a winding driveway. There is a stone entry sign that says Vox Printing.

Our chapter supports ostomates through hospital and phone visits and by supporting the Ostomy Closet, a place where people in need can get temporary help with supplies.

To donate supplies to the closet, you may take them to Wheeler-Stuckey Pharmacy at 1211 N. Shartel in Oklahoma City (map) or to Reid Printing, 3120 S. Boulevard in Edmond (map), or call LaVerna Reid – 405-990-4343 to make arrangements to have them picked up. You may also make cash donations to help purchase supplies for the closet. Send your contributions to George Cabaniss, 1801 NW 36th St., Oklahoma City, OK 73118.

If you need supplies from the closet, it is open the First Wednesday of each month from 2–4 pm at Wheeler-Stuckey Pharmacy located at 1211 North Shartel, Oklahoma City. Our ostomy nurse staffs the closet and gives supplies to those who need them to help them on a temporary basis.

We support the United Ostomy Associations of America and encourage people to use all the resources found on UOAA’s website www.ostomy.org – Frequently asked Questions, Care Guides, general ostomy information and the chat rooms. We also encourage people to subscribe to The Phoenix magazine published by UOAA.
