My story

[p]When my daughter was three she had surgery to create a stoma. Throughout her childhood she had many surgeries. She’s 21 now and has a permanent ileostomy.[/p][p]Along with some friends I created Buttony, a stoma bear. We donate bears throughout the UK to children who have a stoma themselves. Buttony helps them adapt in many ways and helps explain what’s happened to them.[/p][p]Buttony is part of The Breakaway Foundation, a national charity for families of children with bowel and or bladder diversions. [/p][p]Thanks so much for supporting us, we really do appreciate it. [/p]

I absolutely love my Buttony. It gave me a little companion ready to educate my children to why I have scars. I really wanted to donate one to a child so they don't feel alone like I did. Lots of love Jess (Royal International Miss UK Finalist)
