FREE Mastectomy Pillows


FREE Mastectomy Pillows and Seatbelt Port Protectors

After my bilateral mastectomy, I kind of wished I had Mrs. Potato Head arms that I could take on and off at will. It’s painful to let your arms hang naturally at your side after such a traumatic event has happened to your chest. It is especially painful on the side where the lymph node surgery takes place.

My mom made me some small pillows to help with comfort and pain relief after surgery. They were wonderful. I used them for several weeks.

She then started talking with two of her good friends who each had daughters diagnosed with cancer within months of my diagnosis. The three women began to make and give away mastectomy pillows.

They also began making seatbelt port protectors. Seatbelts are so darn uncomfortable after a mastectomy.

They call themselves Bosom Buddies, and to date they have provided pillows and/or port covers to women in 20+ states and to medical centers in 3 states. They are pretty awesome, wonderful, giving ladies and they’d love to bless you.
