Connect volunteer knitters and crocheters with breast cancer survivors to offer free Knitted Knockers to any woman who wants them. There is a huge demand for Knitted Knockers that can’t be met by any one group but together we can do it! If someone in each area will set a goal of meeting the need in just their county it can happen!
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.

Meet some of the wonderful volunteers changing lives...
We are knitted Knockers Tucson. We supply the State of Arizona and help other States when they need it. We also supply Arizona Oncology offices in Town. 2 ladies crochet and 2 knit. We were at lunch at a wonderful restaurant. It is so fun to get together once a year. 2 of our members are snow birds and travel a lot. One of our ladies makes beautiful pine baskets and has taught 2 classes at my house. Another of our members puts a heart on the back of every knocker she makes. 2 of us are nurses one retired one still works full time and finds the time to help. I am D.J/ Dale the state provider and do many events to educate others about Knitted Knockers. I was on a local news station one year. I have never been so proud and honored to belong to any other group as much as this one. I am so thankful for these 3 volunteers I could not do it without them. True angels helping women they don’t know to feel confident, comfortable and whole.
