The Anatomical Apron Project was started to help raise awareness for diseases of the bowel and bladder. People with an ostomy (colostomy, ileostomy, or urostomy), people battling or surviving colon cancer, bladder cancer, or IBD are welcome to be a part of it’s Facebook page. Nurses, educators, caregivers, and family members are also welcome to be a part of their page.
The page was created to display photos of people from all over the world wearing an Anatomical Apron to help raise awareness of the project and the various bowel and bladder related issues.
If you would like to take a photo with an Anatomical Apron, please email Joy Hooper. There are 4 Anatomical Aprons, one for each country, which will circulate around United States, Canada, Australia, and Europe. To reduce the cost of international postage the project will attempt to keep the Anatomical Apron in that specific country. Joy will supply the Anatomical Aprons and request that you take care of it and please do not use it in any disrespectful way. Once you receive the Anatomical Apron you are asked to take your photo and to send it to the next person in a timely manner. Joy will let you know the next address so you will know where to send it. The addresses will not be made public. She is also open to any suggestions or ideas to make this project more successful.
Ostomyland is a big fan of the apron, and think this is a fabulous idea. We’d like to wish Joy and The Anatomical Apron Project all the best and great success.
