About this Website

This site is shared by a number of non-profit, volunteer-run ostomy support groups. The site has existed since 1996. Key events in the history of this site include:

In June 2005 came the sad news that the United Ostomy Association was dissolving and would cease operations on Sept 30, 2005 — and the groups represented on this site began preparing for life as independent support groups without a national parent organization. At the same time, we contemplated a significantly increased role for this website as a way to help local ostomy support groups work together. One of our plans was to take over the discussion board previously on the UOA site. We did, in fact, install a discussion board on this site, but never activated it.

Those plans changed a few weeks later when we learned that a group of former UOA leaders were forming a new national ostomy organization called the United Ostomy Associations of America (UOAA) to fill the void created by UOA’s dissolution. As it became obvious that the new discussion board would be on the UOAA site, we abandoned our plans to host a discussion board on this site (and all discussion board links on this site now point to the UOAA Discussion Board). Meanwhile, this site continues as a way to bring together the ostomy support groups in Oklahoma and any other support groups who may wish to participate.
