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 Knitted Knockers Wichita Kansas!
Knitted Knockers in Wichita started in April 2017. Pictured is Tina Heston who started with us 2 yrs ago and now supplies clinics in KC. Next is Kathy Chaney and Carla Williams who have been with me from day one. Then Beverly Kirk my sister who nominated us for a $500 award which kept us in yarn for a year. She helps stuff them. Then me Sharon Williams. I’m a 2x breast cancer survivor. When I was diagnosed I discovered knitted knockers but there wasn’t a group near me so I started this group. We supply 8 clinics here in Wichita. We also have Laurie Marceau and Diana Fowler who were unable to be with us for the photo.
So wonderful going strong after all these years! Supplying knockers for the women of Kansas. You are rock stars supporting 8 medical clinics!!!!
