Free pillows for port site

Type: 
Web site

This charity mails free port pillows that clip onto the seat belt and protect the port from being rubbed by the seat belt.  

The port pillow also feels really good over a tender sentinel node incision site for breast cancer patients.

Prosthetic Breast Forms

Type: 
Organization
Description: 

We provide handmade custom prosthetic breastforms that are knitted and/or crocheted. Our breast forms are made by volunteers and are provided at no cost to anyone who has had a mastectomy or lumpectomy. Our generous volunteers buy the yarn, lovingly donate their time to produce beautiful custom forms, and pay the shipping costs. We do not accept monetary donations. All we ask is that recipients share our website information with others who may need our beautiful and truly awesome breastforms.

Only the highest quality 100% cotton fiber yarn is used, which is cooler, lighter and much more comfortable than traditional silicone prosthetics. There are color options available and recipients may choose a breastform with or without nipples.
