Today marks 3 years since the 3 ladies pictured started sewing mastectomy pillows and sending them to women in need. They’ve shipped these pillows to women and cancer centers all over the U.S. as well as to Canada, Puerto Rico and England.

Out of that very hard thing have come many, many pillows. 1500 and counting. If you, or someone you know could use mastectomy pillows, please feel free to follow this link to our request form….

Scripture even speaks to the beauty of the feminine form. The…

    Reconstructing Intimacy After Breast Cancer I was honored to have the opportunity to speak with Dr. Juli Slattery of Authentic Intimacy for her Java with Juli podcast recently.  I will keep this post short and let the podcast speak itself, but I will say this about our journey to “authentic intimacy” post mastectomy and breast reconstruction.  I think if Corey and I had really thought through how sex would change when I no longer had breasts, we would’ve had an inkling that there was going to be a struggle ahead, but we were so focused at first on…
