IA Kids

A charity to raise money to support families with a child with Imperforate Anus and to raise awareness and donate to research into this rare condition.
An imperforate anus is a defect (something which is abnormal) that happens to an unborn baby while it is still growing inside its mother. The baby develops this defect or abnormality during the fifth to seventh weeks of the mother’s pregnancy. With these defects, the anus (opening at the end of the large intestine where stool passes) and the rectum (area of the large intestine just above the anus) do not develop properly.

Shadow Buddies - From Hollister

"Now available exclusively from Hollister, the ostomy Shadow Buddy doll can help children through the experience of ostomy surgery. The Shadow Buddy doll was designed by the mother of a pediatric ostomy patient as a "special friend" for her son. The ostomy Shadow Buddy is a muslin doll that has a stoma just like the child who is undergoing ostomy surgery. For each child, the ostomy Shadow Buddy is someone who is "just like me." For health-care professionals, the Shadow Buddy is an excellent educational tool for both children and parents.
