Knitted Knockers

Happy news! We are beginning to send out print materials and stuffed and unstuffed knockers again thanks to the heroic efforts of Candace/ Barbara C and so many volunteers cheerfully working by themselves to provide this service to others. We may be a bit slower than normal but they are starting to go out. You can order them at knittedknockers.org under the "contact us" link. There is a drop down box with "reorder materials" as a choice. I know many of you are needing brochures and especially care instructions to go with the knockers you are providing. Thank so much for all you are doing!!!! ... See MoreSee Less

Question: I haven’t been able to find this anywhere, do you want them stuffed prior to sending them or leave them unstuffed and send some stuffing?

Wonderful. I’ll be sending more up shortly. 💓

That’s awesome 😎

I have several to send

I appreciate y'all so much! Love my knitted knockers! Thanks to each one of you who care so much to do this.. Took me a long time to find something that worked well to match up after a single mastectomy, happy I found you! 14 year survivor!

Thank you for your service and sacrifice. Love my knitted knockers. 13 year survivor!!

Thank you volunteers and everyone at knitted knockers for your help and support

is there any supplier of yarn in Canada that offers a good price point? I'm a survivor, 9 years Cancer free after advanced triple negative breast cancer.

Thank you all so much for all your efforts. I love mine, they’re comfortable and make me feel good about myself! ❤️

How do you Order one and how do you select a size? What are they stuff with?

Thank you to all of you providing this service. Recieving my knockers was such a blessing! I am now on my second set because my first one wore out. God bless you. Keep doing what your doing.

Will be sending some soon.

Me too!!

I feel great that we all are able to get together and make a difference in people’s lives. I look forward to working with everyone to make this world a more comfortable and beautiful place for cancer survivors to live in. It is refreshing to see that people are taking initiative and discussing these issues. A change always starts with dialogue.

You are really inspiration for so so many

Great video Rohini

Fantastic Zoom meeting with the Saaisha India Knitted Knockers group. Amazing the work they are accomplishing for the women of India. Its inspiring the bond we have with women worldwide united around a common cause of bringing comfort and dignity to women. A little early in the morning for this west coast USA participant though, 12 1/2 hrs difference in time zones! ... See MoreSee Less

Having my double mastectomy June 3. Knowing I have my knockers ready and waiting for me makes me feel a little better about the whole thing.

They are wonderful - thanks to all the knitters who are so kind to spend their time making them

You’ll love your Knockers or, as one of my friends calls them — explants! A lot safer than more surgery.

👏👏

'BOO-BEES' The finalists in the Knitted Knocker Super Fan Challenge at STITCHES West this past February 2020. Participants were invited to submit creative "knocker knockoffs" as a fundraiser for knittedknockers.org. Finalists were displayed at Stitches West 2020. Check out these cool designs and don't miss reading the inspiration for the designs. Thank you to all who donated their time and resources to help us with supporting women during a difficult time. 'Boo-Bees' by Bobbie from Bakersfield, CA. I dedicate these knockers to my grandmother who died of breast cancer mets in the 1940's at the young age of 47. Materials & Construction Details: I used yarn and polyfil. These were 2 knockers provided that did not pass inspection. Yarn wrapped & glued to knockers for design. Bee wings attached and antenna attached. ... See MoreSee Less

MAKING a DIFFERENCE! One of our 1,450 registered medical clinics sent this wonderful note today with a request for more knockers:
Good Morning!
I wanted to thank you for the great work that you do. Our patients love the knitted knockers.
Just last week I had a patient who was unable to get reconstruction at the time of her mastectomy secondary to surgical recommendations in response to COVID 19.
She said to me: “What am I going to do , I will go into the hospital normal and come out one side flat.” She was emotionally distraught about this.
I was able to meet her at the hospital on the day of surgery and present her with the knitted knockers. These made a huge difference to her self esteem.
It is a very stressful time right now for everyone in our country, and especially so for women who are being treated for breast cancer. Your breast forms are a godsend for our patients.
The director of our Breast Center program is a staunch supporter of your organization and we are very pleased to offer these knockers to our patients.
We would be so grateful if you could send additional knitted knockers our way for the benefit of our patients. They may be sent to my attention at the address below.
Again, thank you so much for undertaking such a wonderful service for women in the midst of breast cancer.
Warmest regards,
Jamie

S'MORE MAMMO-GRAHAMS, PLEASE!'

Story or Dedication: I made these S'mores Knockers to encourage women to get mammograms and to highlight the free mammograms The Breast Cancer Center provides every October. They are also a humorous take on how women feel during a mammogram.
