Why Support Us
Unfortunately in early 2016 I was diagnosed with stage 3 Rectal Cancer
As you can imagine at just 49 years it came as a big surprise. Whilst subsequent surgery and chemo was thankfully successful - my stoma surgery resulted in a perastomal hernia. Which I still have today!
Actually Perastomal Hernia's are not uncommon - About 30% of all Stoma surgeries quickly develop into a hernia and over time this increases to as much as 50%.
So I was looking for something that would offer more support for both my stoma bag and also my hernia. After extensive research
I eventually found what I was looking for overseas. (Not surprisingly Australia is the not only country with colon cancer.)
What I was amazed by was the Quality of their Products, their Innovative Ideas & Huge Range of products - I believed in their product so much I asked if I could be their wholesaler in Australia.
