THE STORY:

Did you know that many breast cancer survivors now have the option to undergo fat grafting for breast reconstruction which, injects fat from the buttocks, stomach, back or thighs into the chest to add symmetry to a reconstructed breast. I didn’t until recently, when one of my best friends—a breast cancer survivor — underwent fat grafting for breast reconstruction. After the procedure, her surgeon recommended that she wear a light weight thin compression garment like Spanx. When I brought her the lightweight Spanx bodysuit, she was reluctant to wear it due to the discomfort she was experiencing. After she put it on, she immediately said the garment made her “feel better…feel feminine…and it’s so light without adding extra warmth.”

October is Breast Cancer awareness month and many women undergo breast cancer screening at that time. When the new year arrives, newly diagnosed women may be  undergoing procedures to treat their breast cancer. This makes March an opportune time to increase awareness of the many reconstructive breast options.

Totes for Hope and Love Project aims to provide comfort to as many women as possible while increasing awareness of the many options available to breast cancer survivors.

Children with developmental disabilities from Mychal’s Learning Place are ready to lovingly assemble each Tote of Hope and Love for breast cancer survivors. Each tote is filled with items of comfort as a token of support for patients coping with a stressful diagnosis. Each Tote of Hope and Love contains personal items to comfort and promote healing during various stages and types of cancer treatment. Totes will include items such as a journal, pen, specially designed inspirational card, warm socks, pajamas, and/or a Spanx support garment.

As a kickoff, on March 26, 2016, totes will be provided to SistersBreastCancerSurvivorsNetwork.org  at the 7th Annual ActNow- cancer care conference in Los Angeles - discussing all types of cancers that are particularly high in African American communities.

Please consider sponsoring a tote to make this project a success. Our goal is to raise enough money to allow us to gift a tote to one hundred breast cancer survivors. We greatly appreciate your generous tax-deductible donation which gives you the opportunity to relieve some of the financial burden of a Cancer diagnosis, connect communities, and promote awareness of breast cancer treatment options. Without you, this project would not be possible. Thank you for helping us to make a difference.
