At the age of 17, I was diagnosed with Chrons disease and endured the pain and heartbreak of slowly losing my large intestine. When I was 19, I underwent my first surgery and wound up with an ielostomy. I was devastated and thought that my life was over. My self confidence was non-existent. The thought of having a meaningful relationship or raising a family never entered my mind. However, there was one person in my life who was not going to let me travel down the road of despair and self-pity.....my grandmother. Grandma was determined to make me feel good about myself and my ostomy bag.
Grandma knew that there had to be a way to make the bag look more appealing, so she consulted with a woman who did alterations for her. The two of them came up with the first version of the pouch cover. I was thrilled with the idea and began to feel less self-conscious! Since then I have made many design changes and variations of the cover for my own use. My favorites were the one with bows and lace on it for my wedding day, and the baby blue one for the day my son was born.
For many years friends and family members have encouraged me to share my designs with other people in my situation. Now you, too, can convey fashion, confidence and self assurance while concealing the appearance of the collection bag. This is the reason C&S Ostomy Pouch Covers Inc. was founded.
I hope you will take some time to browse my web site. I believe that once you have tried one you will understand the benefits and wear it for a lifetime like I have.
