  1. Just found this site, and noticed a letter from an ostomate in Orleans. Hope he or she found the support they were looking for. I too live in Orleans, and would be interested in making contact. I noticed the monthly meetings have moved further west. Too bad as we are getting into winter and it becomes a bit of a hike.
