Visitor Service


Metro Maryland Ostomy Association (MMOA) educates volunteer visitors to help patients with, or who are preparing for, ostomy surgery. Every effort is made to match a visitor to the patient by type of surgery, age, and gender. 

A visit by an experienced ostomate is to reassure the new ostomate that it is possible to live successfully with an ostomy and give the patient an opportunity to have his/her questions answered.

Visits can occur in the hospital, at home, by phone or at one of our monthly meetings.


To request a visitor:

Coming to a MMOA meeting I see how others are not just coping but living a full life. It gives me confidence I can tackle any obstacle.
