Breast Cancer DIY

...created by women with breast cancer, for women and men with breast cancer!

Fashion: Post Mastectomy

Looking your best and feeling your best seem to help us feel better about ourselves and our circumstances.  Having been diagnosed with breast cancer can leave you feel down and wondering how you can ever look good again. Take heart in the fact that we all think these thoughts, and somehow - maybe it's girl-power - but we all seem to find a new focus on life and a new fashion sense.

To find what is available in your area, you might want to check with your local cancer society, oncology clinics, breast cancer support groups, and sometimes the YWCA has helped in some locations.  You'll never know what's available, until you ask!

We've provided a selection of resources that we hope will help you to look and feel your best.

As always, please know that you are not alone!

* Special Note:  Although some websites are trustworthy and have good reputations, there are many that can be questionable.  And, we advise you to be careful.  Remember to consult with your doctor about what would be best for you. Be aware!

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT:
"Quilt Raffle!"   Our 3rd Annual Quilt Raffle is coming in September 2011!
This year the quilt is larger, so it's more work!




New Products we've found!

Recently we came across a new product, I hate my "boobs" because they make me sweat.
Check out this new product to see if it might help you.  We do not endorse any products, but when one comes along that just might help someone, we will put it on our website.

Breast Cancer Jewelry

It is extremely imporant for you to wear a medical alert bracelet in the event you are found unconscious, so medical personnel know of your condition. 

Please do not wear a medical alert bracelet that looks like regular jewelry - it is very important that your bracelet can easily be seen and recognized by emergency personnel. Be pro-active!
