Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance

Type: 
Organization
Description: 

The Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance has been building its encyclopedic cache of information since 1996. We provide honest, factual, and helpful information to the people affected by asbestos-caused health complications like lung cancer, asbestosis, and mesothelioma. Asbestos is a mineral used mainly throughout the 20th century to strengthen materials and provide them with resistance to heat and electricity. However, it is extremely dangerous when inhaled or ingested, causing many people who worked with the mineral to receive difficult diagnoses. Information included on the MCA site is HONcode certified for medical veracity and reviewed by a team of experienced writers, medical journalists, and doctors. At the MCA, we connect these affected communities to information, support, and legal help to rebuild their lives.

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.
