Hi, my name is Nancy. I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, and recent breast cancer survivor. You don’t know me, but we will forever be connected through the kinship of cancer. I’ve been right where you are – and now I want to help.
When I was first diagnosed, my husband scoured the Internet looking for items to help with my double mastectomy recovery. We had no idea what to get. We felt lost, surprised there wasn’t a clear answer online, and as a result, even more alone. So he bought me a number of things from a number of sites – pillows, garments, etc. Some worked, some didn’t. The things that worked were invaluable.
After my recovery, a friend was diagnosed. I took the things that had worked for me, put them in a bag, and gave them to her. After she recovered, a friend of a friend was diagnosed, and I passed the bag along to her. Then the colleague of another friend, and so on. After six people had used this same bag, I realized that I had stumbled onto something that could help far more women than this one bag could reach. And I desperately wanted to help.
