Ernie Hulme – Vice Chairman – North Staffordshire

Ernie has been married to Carol since 1973. In 1995, at the age of 44 he was diagnosed with low rectal cancer and after therapies had a colostomy. Ernie’s stoma care nurse asked him to visit a patient a year later, which led to him becoming a volunteer with us. Ernie was the founding member of ‘Outlook’ an ostomy support group in North Staffordshire which now has a membership of nearly 300 people.
