My mom and her friends continue to make armpit pillows for mastectomy patients and have added port protector seat belt covers for chemo 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 and seat belt covers are FREE. If you are interested, leave a comment below, send me an email at kimharms@rocketmail.com or go to my FREE Mastectomy pillow page and fill out the form.  All mom needs from you is a name and a shipping address.

Free Mastectomy Pillows

Photo By Kim Harms

I used several breast cancer specific supplies as I recovered from my bilateral mastectomy earlier this year.

Some were useful- like the above mastectomy pillows.

Some were not- like the two post-mastectomy camis that someone convinced my husband I needed for $70 a piece. And they gave him their sales pitch when he was in the hospital waiting room during my surgery. Oh My Word! Leave the poor men alone while their wives are in having their breasts removed! I’m still a little perturbed by that.

My mom and two of her friends have started making mastectomy pillows to give away FREE to women who need them. The three women have each had daughters diagnosed with cancer this year (2 breast, 1 skin). And the three of them also love Jesus and when he gives them an idea for serve others, they follow through.

These pillows fit snuggly in your armpit, providing a cushion between your arm and your sore chest after surgery. I used mine for about three weeks post-mastectomy, and they really did relieve the pressure. Each pillow is made of fleece so they won’t slide around in your armpit. You can buy mastectomy pillows online for anywhere from $20-$50, but mom and her friends are providing them for free.

If you or someone you know could use a mastectomy pillow, contact me through the form below. (I’ve had some technical issue with the form, so if you don’t hear back from me within 48 hours, email me at kimharms@rocketmail.com.
