Stoma Covers for Throat Cancer Survivors






As a jewellery designer and dentist who's primary focus is Head & Neck Cancer patients, I recognize that there is a need for people who have had a laryngectomy, or who have a tracheostomy stoma, to be able to have a decorative covering for their stoma.

These vintage filligree silver-plated stampings are available in a variety of shapes and styles, all measuring between 1 1/4" and 2" in diameter.

As these are custom made necklaces, I can use wire, beading, or organza ribbons to accent the filligree focal piece.

Sizing and colour choices are also custom chosen.

Please contact me for more information. There is a section in the left hand column for Stoma Covers.

that was a very brilliant idea. Normally, irritations are the aftereffect of using ostomy supplies. That is why it is important to use only reliable hollister stomas skin barrier with flange. However, there are some who have skin "reaction" to the materials or the components used. If this happens, make sure to inform the nurse
