Meet Sam and Sally

Dolls aceSam and Sally are special dolls which have been adapted to help young children understand about the ACE procedure. Sam and Sally both have an ACE and can both be used to show young children how an ACE can look and how easy it is to self catheterise their ACE.

Showing children in a way that is more child-friendly using the dolls can make a difference to their engagement and also give them the opportunity to practice for themselves.

Sam and Sally have been kindly bought by The Breakaway Foundation, a registered charity that supports children and young people with bowel and/or bladder dysfunction.

Sam and Sally are for use by the hospital only and cannot be purchased for individual use.

The Breakaway Foundation also offer Buttony Bear, a bear with a stoma, to whom children can confide in, share their experience, use to develop their confidence, practice changing their bag, befriend, cherish and grow to love. Please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
