The Wigs, Hats & Scarves Program now includes hats, turbans, Knitted Knockers and ComfyChemo shirts. All inventory is new and available to any cancer patient without charge. Cheerful Heart works with Merle Norman if a patient is looking for a wig.
"It hasn't been an easy journey without many obstacles. But with a lot of determination and belief ComfyChemo is now recognized by making cancer treatment centers across the United States for not only the wonderful shirts be also for the love behind each one, all because of one nurse.” ComfortChemo Team
“Knitted Knockers are special handmade breast prosthesis for women who have undergone mastectomies or other procedures to the breast. Traditional breast prosthetics are usually expensive, heavy, sweaty and uncomfortable. They typically require special bras or camisoles with pockets and can’t be worn for weeks after surgery. Knitted Knockers on the other hand are soft, comfortable, beautiful and when placed in a regular bra they take the shape and feel of a real breast. Our special volunteer knitters provide these free to those requesting them. Knitted knockers can be adjusted to fill the gap for breasts that are uneven and easily adapted for those going through reconstruction by simply removing some of the stuffing.” https://www.knittedknockers.org/.
Locally, Knit Wits, a Big Arm knitting group, supplies Cheerful Heart with Knitted Knockers.
