Members are ostomates, their families, ostomy (CWOCN) nurses, surgical suppliers, physician advisors, and other interested persons.

The goal of the Charlotte County support group is to aid patients and their families in the practical and emotional adjustments to an ostomy. We offer rehabilitation help but do not provide medical advice. Nothing in this site should be interpreted as medical advice.

The Charlotte County Ostomy Support  Group is a volunteer organization. We are composed of people with ostomies and their caretakers for the purpose of offering mutual emotional aid and support through people who have learned to live with an ostomy; educational programs and materials to keep us informed of the historical as well as cutting-edge advancements in medical technology; advocacy to communicate and promote the needs of people with ostomies.
