FREE Mastectomy Pillows and Seatbelt Port Protectors

After my bilateral mastectomy, I kind of wished I had Mrs. Potato Head arms that I could put on and take 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 and became part of my arsenal for dealing with the pain. Strong drugs helped as well ­čÖé

Mom started talking with two of her good friends who each had daughters diagnosed with cancer within months of my diagnosis, and the three women decided to begin making and giving away mastectomy pillows.

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

The Bosom Buddies (as they call themselves) have provided pillows and/or port covers to women in 20+ states and to medical centers in 4 states. They are pretty awesome, wonderful, giving ladies and they’d love to bless you.

If you are in need of either of these products, please contact me via the form below. In the Message box, please include your request (one mastectomy pillow, two mastectomy pillows, seatbelt port protector) and your mailing address. If you don’t hear from me within 2 days, please email your request to kimharms@rocketmail.com. (I’m having some technical issues with the form. Thanks for your patience!)
