Last week, Melissa had the pleasure of attending the 7th National United Ostomy Associations of America conference in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania as an exhibitor, entertainer, and as the new National Conference Social Director! She saw some old friends and met some new ones in the city of brotherly love. Since we could go on for days about the fabulous conference, we’ve compiled a short video with all the highlights.
Did that song sound familiar? In honor of the convention and all that the UOAA stands for, Melissa wrote original lyrics to the tune of Philadelphia Freedom by Elton John. Entitled UOAA Freedom, it’s currently available in our store HERE and and you pick the price. From $0.99 up, you can purchase this song and half of your donation will go to the UOAA!
Between educational lectures and a roaring twenties casino night, ostomates, caregivers, and professionals came together in a week of awareness and acceptance. Melissa found a new love for the community who opened its arms to her and her story. Two years from now, she hopes to see you all at the next national UOAA conference!
Melissa is currently a available for other fundraisers and events. If you’re interested in having her entertain or speak, please reach out to her HERE. Together, we can help everyone say No You Cant’cer.
