Company Summary

Mastectomies HURT! Been there, done that! Our mission is to help women and men heal in comfort and dignity after surgery in their battle against breast cancer. The problem is there isn't any STANDARDIZED post op equipment to go home in after this painful and psychologically difficult surgery. If a sprained elbow gets a sling to heal in why isn’t there helpful equipment to heal in after a mastectomy?” We take care of Austin's patients as a gift.
