Today is International Day of Persons With Disabilities.
And today, we’d like to bring your attention to some disabilities that are not immediately obvious, specifically, ostomy. Living with a hidden disability, such as having a stoma, can make daily life more challenging because of the disability itself and also because it’s difficult for others to recognise, acknowledge or understand the challenges faced.
