My Aqua Knocker arrived this morning and could I please thank Christine R so much…it’s beautiful and actually made me cry! I have had breast cancer twice now and am awaiting a second mastectomy which, fingers crossed, will take place early next year a preventative procedure)! I may then be ordering a complete new pair of knitted knockers. I moved south just recently and found an article about you on Facebook. I was diagnosed with cancer in 1996 then again 2015 and never realised a brilliant charity was literally on my doorstep in Southport near where I used to live! Thank you so very much for being there it means a lot! X
I cannot thank Knitted Knockers enough and your volunteers are amazing! There will not be a day that I wear them that I do not think about all of the ladies that devoted of their time to make them. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart. You ladies are the best! #KNITTEDKNOCKERSROCK!
Thank you Christine,
I had a mastectomy in August and ordered sone knitted knockers after reading about them on he McMillan website. I am in awe of the workmanship that went into these and that someone has given their time unselfishing to make these.
Thank you so much! I had my mastectomy surgery 2 years ago. I have tried alot of other options and can not find anything comfortable to wear that I feel confident wearing. Now I wear my knitted knocker everyday. The knitted knockers feel so soft and nice. You guys are life savers. This is a wonderful organization. Thank you,
I was diagnosed with breast cancer in July 2017. Due to family history, several biopsies and the type of breast cancer, I decided on a Bilateral Masectomy after 6 months of Chemo and my tissue came back after surgery that I was a high candidate for return. I did make the best decision. I didn’t want to go through surgery and have reconstruction done. So I tried silicone. They were hot & heavy. I bought a Cobie bra with a pocket and the Cancer center had Knitted Knockers so I thought I’d try them. I love them they are comfortable and natural looking and they stay put. Thank you so much to every volunteer that makes these. I am so very grateful.
After my surgery I went back to going without a bra and most people didn’t really notice. Then my granddaughter had her wedding and I did not want to look bad or distract from her on her day. Thank goodness you sent me a set and I adjusted one and even put a silver dollar in it for just a little weight and with my sports bra under my suit nobody noticed that I was missing one breast. I danced and had a great time. Thank you all for doing this for us.
I can’t thank you enough for getting me started with a knitted knocker in 2014 when I had a mastectomy. You hurried up and sent me one just before I had my surgery. I was so grateful at that time as I did not know anything about Knitted Knockers, now I spread the word wherever I go and have had several friends making them. I can’t thank you enough for contacting me in Florida in 2014.
Thank you very much for my knitted aqua Knocker. I can’t express how much it means to me to be able to get back to swimming and some normality. It feels so comfortable and looks so ” normal” that I don’t think anyone at the gym has noticed any difference. The kind words of encouragement from the lovely lady who made my aqua Knocker were very much appreciated.
I love my knitted knockers and the ladies that provide them.
My husband pretty much tells the way we feel in this poem he wrote..
You’ve heard the word knockers but do you know what it means
It’s used a couple of different ways in varying extremes
One mounted on a door let’s you know when someone’s there
The others are on a woman’s chest and the two do not compare
They’re all different shapes and sizes different colors too
The door knocker you can pick the other’s aren’t up to you
You can change a door’s knocker as often as you like
To change a woman’s knockers the cost is out of sight
A woman may need a knocker if one has been removed
Before it can be delivered it may have to get approved
There are different knockers to help you fill in the space
One I’d never heard of quickly put a smile on my face
It’s a Knitted Knocker because it’s knitted out of yarn
They’re made by Special Ladies who really give a darn
To some it’s just a knitted form with filling placed inside
To those who really need one it will help restore their pride
If you like the water you’ll need one that’s quick to dry
There’s a swimming knocker that you should keep close by
If you wash your Knitted Knocker please do so with care
Don’t put it in the dryer you’ll end up with a lopsided pair
Thanks to all who spend their time making Knitted Knockers as a gift
They sure do come in handy for those who could really use a lift
If you lose a knocker either by accident or disease
Pray for Knitted Knockers next time you are on your knees

We have shared this with family , friends and medical staff. They all wanted a copy. I hope it will brighten someone’s day, just like Knitted Knockers did mine.
I got my knitted knockers a few months ago and feel so complete with them on. I had a double mastectomy in Feb. and was discouraged by the silicone prosthetics they were so heavy and hot. I have given all the info to all of my Drs involved in my care and they think this Organization is the best and I totally agree. I feel the love that was put into them as they were made Thank you so much
