Knitted Knockers

Sawubona from eSwatini, Africa!!! I wanted to share with you that the ‘Knitted Knocker’s that I brought over to eSwatini with me were very well received and were gone before I knew it!!! This has been an amazing experience, I literally had women lifting their shirts and showing me whatever it was they had - newspaper, rags, etc forming a breast under their clothes and then pointing to the ‘Knitted Knockers’ and asking for a pair! The smiles and joy that was evident on each and every face is something that I will cherish! I am wondering how feasible it would be to collect a number of these prothesis again so that I can ship them down for this much needed resource in this country - I could have brought double the amount and it still wouldn’t be enough!! I look forward to your thoughts and hearing from you!! Thank you again for your support and for your help!Deb

Knitted Knockers

Very special email from a grateful recipient... "My nurse navigator gave me a knitted knocker when I was diagnosed with Invasive Lobular Breast Cancer in March, 2018. Before my surgery I had no idea how much I would appreciate this. I ordered another one & a swimsuit one after I was able to put on a sports bra. My husband was so glad to see me feeling better that he wrote a poem about Knitted Knockers. Although my surgeon, her assistant, my gynecologist and their nurses had heard of Knitted Knockers, none of them had seen one. I have proudly showed one to all of them and family members along with the poem he wrote. Everyone wanted a copy of the poem including my Nurse Navigator (who is going to frame it) and the ladies at Pretty in Pink Boutique where I was fitted for my after mastectomy and prosthesis just last wk. Even though I have a prosthesis I will continue to wear my Knitted Knockers. I love the feel of them. I feel his poem is very "uplifting" and so true. I would love for it to be shared on your website. Thank you for all you and the other ladies do!
Thank you for sharing this adorable poem and connecting with your doctors! They can register with us and we will provide them with materials for their patients to also receive these wonderful free gifts of love and caring!"

Knock Knock

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

Perfect I Also Have a Pair of Knitted Knockers I dont Wear Them Much but in Case I have to go to some Event I have them ( had the Left Boob Removed 4 Years ago Invasive Ductal Carcinoma no chemo no Radiation surgery was Curative )

Love this!!! Lol

Absolutely love this poem ❤️ every time I finish knitting one I think “hope this makes a difference to a woman’s life”💝

Love the poem. I showed my surgeon and PT mine. They both love them and will be in touch.

How lovely to write a poem about knitted knocker these ladies do a wonderful job x

Omg awesome got mine but haven’t used them yet still healing 👍😀

Absolutely wonderful. 😀

Wonderful mission!!!

They have been the best to "up lift" my spirit I am 2 years post double mastectomy and they are wonderful. My grandaughter mentioned at first that they look alike ten bobs at first because they were a little high on my chest. So I added 2 lead stinkers from my fishing box and was la ... just where they should set. Thank God for the straight talking teens

I have knitted dozens of pairs over the past few years, always hoping in some little way I am making a difference. The poem brought tears to my eyes. Kathy Harris take a look!

He gets it!! Love knitting these!

This is so awsome love my knitted knockers

I only wear my knocker. Don't like the heavy ones from the hospital. Xx

Wonderful to hear of the responses and the awesome poem. I'll get to my knitting needles again. It does make a difference!

Love this poem! Sharing it to save and use our RI Knockers group- BRAvo of RI.

Carol Kilgore this poem

Fabulous!

I started knitting knockers two years ago in honor of my sister-in-law, Marilyn, who had been diagnosed with breast cancer. With thanksgiving, Marilyn is cancer-free! I continue to knit knockers for women facing a similar challenge.

Love this poem💗💗💗🙏🙏🙏

Special guy....

Good Morning America... your feel good story for this week

Love his poem
