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...
Meet Gail, Super volunteer since 2016. Not even the devastating lava flows in Hawaii stopped her from caring for others! What a blessing her and her group make to so many in Hawaii!
It’s just retired me knitting away here in Pahoa, HI. I call my “group” Lava You Knitters for the lava river that flowed through my subdivision two years ago. My mother, who also knits, says it has kept her sane over the years. I understand that. I started working for this charity on August 25, 2016. My total orders filled to date is 874.
