Free Mastectomy Pillows

Mastectomy Pillows

My mom and her friends continue to make armpit pillows for mastectomy patients. They ship these all over the US, and through their act of service to others I’ve been able to have some lovely email conversations with women who are making their way through breast cancer.

These pillows are FREE. If you are interested, go to my FREE Mastectomy pillow tab at the top of my website and fill out the form.  All mom needs from you is a name, the type of request (one pillow, two pillows, seatbelt cover), a shipping address and a donation for shipping if you are able.

  1. I would like to get my coworker 2 of these armpit pillows and a seatbelt pillow. Her surgery is January 9th. Could this get to Seattle by next Friday?

  2. I would like to get my dear friend 1 matching (if possible) armpit and 1 seatbelt pillow. Thanks so much for your generosity and support for breast cancer patients.

    1. I hated seatbelts after my double mastectomy! I hope you are recovering well. If you would like a seatbelt protector, just send me your mailing address and my mom will get one sent out to you.

  3. This is amazing. I would love one for a very close friend who is undergoing a mastectomy this week. I will send you an e-mail right now.

    Thank you!

  4. I was just doing a google search for a mastectomy seat belt pillow. I am 43 years old and I just had a double mastectomy. I would love one of your seatbelt covers if you are still sending them out. My
