World Ostomy Day March 2012 - Iran

It was held at the Iranian Osotomy Charity Society Celebration of the Global Ostomate’s Day like previous years, which at the same time coincides with the celebrations in other parts of world, was held in a much more glorious manner than pervious years at the Iranian Ostomy charity Society.

This event was held in the Professor Adls’ Hall, with an atmosphere of love, friendships and joy, which represented the hope of life expectancy among all Ostomates present. Mrs. Taheri was the presenter of this ceremony and in between her speech for the Ostomates and the audience, she recited some of Hafiz and Molavi‘s poems and other distinguished poets of Iran, which brought ecstasy and delight to the audience. In continuance of the program, Mrs. Hakmi‘s speech for the audience was on the subjects of; self awareness (Self Study), and theology, and at the intervals of this program the guests were entertained by the Traditional music which was played by Mr. Manafi, Mr. Pedram, Mr. Sanaie, and Mrs. Manafi. Hereon, I deem necessary to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to all Ostomate members and staff who organized this delightful Ostomate’s Day celebration ceremony.

At the front of the Hall, on a table, an attractive two story cake which was beautifully decorated in white, with the Iranian Ostomy Society’s logo, and with ten luminous candles which were marking. the ten year anniversary of the establishment of the Iranian Ostomy Charity Society was observed. This cake was donated by the Poupak Pastry Shop for the Iranian Ostomy Society, and was cut by several veterans of the society and distributed between the guests.

Then Mrs. Shamsi recited a magnificent literary piece about love of god and life, and also love of the Iranian Ostomy Society. At the conclusion of the program, all the Ostomates alternately took remembrance photos with each other. For the termination of the program the audiences were served with lunch. Preparation, planning and organization of this ceremony was due to much efforts of Mrs. Minaie, Mrs. Rostamzadegan, Mr. Dastavis and Mr. Ebrahimi, which we all hope was met with the satisfaction and enjoyment of all Ostomates who were present.


Blood, poop and tears ... and rising above it.

I say this with the utmost respect. The fact that you put yourself out there and talk about a lot of taboo issues with humour and intelligence is wonderful and inspiring. I personally believe that part of healing is not being mentally consumed by a condition. Clearly you are taking control OVER the disease as much as you can but still, I have to wonder if you can move post ibd, cancer and other significant cases. MANY people have their own issues too. I have several very close family members who have been near death and clawed their way back. I would do my best to think of myself as healthy and well and not diseased and uncured. (Anonymous)
