Patient Leader

I've been involved with ostomy support online since 1998 having had my own stoma for almost 20 years since I was 21. The Ostomyland website project started life as a single page in the days of the 33k dial up modern and grew from there. It now has millions of hits a month and consists of hundreds of pages plus community features with thousands of members. Ostomyland is entirely funded by myself, paying for the website hosting accounts and other bits and pieces. January 2017 will see Ostomyland reach its 19th anniversary.
