The C3Life community has moved, please join us on Inspire!
Over 7 years ago, the C3Life Community was born. Since then, we have grown to 13,000 strong. We thank you for your participation over the years. The camaraderie that developed between members in this community indicates that having a safe and friendly peer-to-peer space is an important element of healthy living for so many ostomates.
In an effort to best serve this community, we have decided to collaborate with Inspire, a third party health and wellness social networking site, to offer a new and improved online support community for ostomy patients and caregivers. In 2005, Inspire was created with the belief that patients and caregivers need a safe and secure place to support and connect with one another. Since then more than 200 support communities have been formed. Specifically, the Inspire Ostomy Support Community was founded in 2010 as a vibrant and dynamic community where members can share information and support each other. It currently has 10,500 members who post over 2,000 new discussions every week.
Effectively immediately, the Inspire Ostomy Support Community will replace the existing C3Life Discussion Forum. Please make sure to continue the conversation with us by following the steps below to join the Inspire Ostomy Support Community:
