In late 2018 Ann Ivol, Ostomy Canada Society President answered an email request from Handi-Link to participate in a radio interview. The interview was conducted with topics of discussion including the history, goals and challenges of the society. It aired in mid-2019. As a follow-up, the radio station wanted to conduct an interview with a person who was living with an ostomy. Lisa Gausman was pleased to participate. That interview aired in late 2019. In mid-2020, another request was made for a third interview with a focus on how the society’s work has continued during Covid-19 and a refresher on how living with an ostomy impacts a person, as well as how Ostomy Canada Society works to respond to the needs of the affected community. In Ann’s words, “We always welcome the opportunity to advocate for persons living with an ostomy.”
