I am 42 years old and a 7-year survivor of breast cancer. I had a right mastectomy back in 1996 for a 2.5 cm tumor and had 18 of 18 negative nodes. I opted not to have reconstruction and I've used different breast forms, but recently came across one that I just LOVE. It is so real-like and it is light-weight and does not require a mastectomy bra. The name of the lady who sells them is Rosella and her e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org (Kartz Collection). She has all different sizes. She will soon have an 800 number, as well as an up and coming web site, which I think will be great for mastectomy patients. Presently she is selling them at an Ebay store and they are so reasonable!! The site link is http://www.ebaystores.com/kartzcollection/plistings/list/all/dept11/indexhtml?col=2&dir=-1
If you order one from her, tell her you heard about them from me (Liz Bean). I told her I was going to "spread the word" about this great breast form. They are so comfortable. I love them! I just had to share this wonderful find with any mastectomy patient who is looking for a more comfortable affordable breast prosthesis. Please check them out!!! And if you get one or a pair, let me know how you like it/them. My e-mail address is email@example.com -- I know you will really appreciate that I posted this message.
