Great Comebacks®

The Great Comebacks® National Awards Event will kick off the WOCN Society's 47th Annual Conference.  Please join us!  Be a part of this amazing evening filled with emotional and inspiring stories of hope, courage and accomplishment from our ostomy community.

Each year, the Great Comebacks® Program recognizes the achievements of people who have overcome Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, colorectal cancer and other conditions that can lead to ostomy surgery. We also honor the caregivers who play an important role in helping them reclaim their lives after surgery.
