Posted: Mon Oct 10, 2011 8:30 am Post subject: Excess Supplies
Most Ostomy associations will accept your excess supplies to send to people like me. I am in the Philippines and received donations from the Australia Fund to distribute to Ostomates in my area. The cost of appliances here is equal to the average wage and clearly that is beyond most peoples ability to pay. I know that the States also supply product to other areas of the Philippines so contact your association and ask, I am sure they would welcome your excess to help others free of charge.
At this time I am only assisting 5 Ostomates but there are many more in my area and I will be able to help many more with help from organizations that are helped by people as yourself. Anyone else reading this with excess product, no matter where you are in the world, contact your association and ask them first.
I've had my ostomy since Mar 2010 and have no insurance. I would love to have reversal but it's not in the cards at this time. I would be very interested in talking to you about your excess supplies. Please contact me privately at ****.

I think it is wonderful you had a reversal (a blessing). I too had a reversal in July of this year (for the second time). I had plenty of extra supplies left over and I went to osotogroup.org and shipped the supplies to them (it cost me $9.00+) but I have learned that I am blessed so therefore, I find it to be important to bless someone else.
I did not call, I just shipped and left them my phone number in case they had questions.

I have some extra supplies that you can have. The universe was very kind to me last year so I want to pay it forward. I have 10 tubes of Adapt paste, 3 boxes of Smith & Nephew adhesive remover wipes, 2 boxes of Smith & Nephew skin prep wipes, and 2 boxes of assorted bags(convatec and Holister). Let me know if you are interested.
I'm in between, so free supplies would be well served for me during this time in my life.
Sorry that I haven't been on in a while. I still have them. I would be happy to ship them to you if you aren't local. I live in White Ga. My email is mr_mcompo At yahoo dot com. Not sure how this site fees about putting personal emails in notices. Drop me an e.

Nommy77, please send me your contact info including address. I have several supplies I will mail to you. I have been trying to give some away for several months and cannot find anyone in the Oklahoma City area after the tornadoes to respond. I'm tired of having them around the house boxed up and ready to ship.
I have several two piece hollister bags and flanges. They are all small 7 inch bags which work great foe females but not too good for men. I would be happy to get them to someone that can use them. I posted a forum on here several months ago and the only taker that I got was a guy in Florida that wanted to send the, to Cuba for the poor. Or suggestions to send to the Ostogroup where they would be sold to those without insurance. Or to FOW. I know they are great groups but since I paid for these supplies I would much rather they go to someone here n the us that has a real need. It sounds like you could use them.
Send me a message at c a Weekley @ me . Com (there are no spaces between any of the previous letters and words). Hopefully it will come through and we can share info and get you some help.
