Welcome to Life Reconstructed!

I’m glad you’re here, and I hope I can encourage you with my words (check out my Blog tab) and with FREE mastectomy pillows if you are in need.

The first night after my bilateral mastectomy in 2016, my sweet sweet man pulled a recliner right up next to my hospital bed and held my hand all night. He only let go when I woke him to scratch my nose, which was like every 20 minutes. All. Night. Long. (I had an incessant itch and an amazing hubby.)

But that unreachable itch was only the first of many many challenges post-mastectomy. I could hardly use my arms, and I kind of just wished I could take them off until I healed. It’s painful to let your arms hang naturally at your side after such a traumatic event has happened to your chest.

My mom made me some small pillows to help with comfort and pain relief after surgery. They were wonderful and became part of my arsenal for dealing with the pain. Strong drugs also helped 🙂

Since that time Mom and a few of her good friends (two of whom have had daughters with cancer) have made hundreds of pillows and seatbelt covers to give away. They call themselves the Bosom Buddies and have provided these free gifts to women in 34 states and to medical centers in 5 states. They are pretty awesome, wonderful, giving ladies and they’d love to bless you.
