I was diagnosed with breast cancer on my 86th birthday. After my mastectomy, my physical therapist told me about KK. I went to the website, and shortly thereafter received a pair (only needed one) at no cost to me. I love them. They are so soft and the hole in the back makes it easy to pull out fiberfill or rearrange it to get a good fit. You don’t need special bras, either. I was dreading using a regular prosthesis; and thanks to this foundation, I don’t have to. Hats off to these ladies! Am sending my donation today.

After my mastectomy, I used to wear a pair of rolled socks until someone told be about knitted knockers. They came super fast and are absolutely perfect.

THANK YOU!! ♥️

As a knitter, I was so delighted to find your website and all this information soon after my diagnosis with breast cancer. Mastectomy May 19 2022, yarn arrived May 20, discharged from hospital May 21 and I was able to knit my first knocker and happily wear it just 48 hours post surgery. I was surprised how comfortable it is, right from the start. I’m living in France now, and the network of knocker knitters seems to be smaller than in the US, but I will be joining them!

Just had to write to say thanks. I had a left mastectomy in 2001. After much chemo and radiation I was ready to face the world. Unfortunately all the inserts I knew of were very heavy, uncomfortable, and never looked right. Finally settled on a bean bag type insert. Just recently at a ladies luncheon a friend told me about KK. I thought why not. I ordered and 2 came within 2 weeks. Can’t tell you how happy I am with it. It is soft molds well and looks very natural. I am so grateful to all who donate their time and talent to make these. Wish I had known about them before. Thanks.

My Mom recently underwent a mastectomy. She found your site and ordered one kk. She was so happy when she received it in the mail and got not one, but two…so she has a spare! I’m so thankful that she was so happy with them! Thank you all for such a blessing and may God bless each and every one of you! You’ll never know what this meant to her.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR MY KNOCKERS! I absolutely love wearing them!! I used to wear heavy silicone or gel bra inserts I bought at Macy’s years back. Sometimes they would even fall out if I leaned over much….talk about embarrassment! I’ve tested my knockers and they will NOT fall out of my bra. The radiation to my right breast pretty much left it deflated, which happened gradually over the years since. Luckily, I caught a news special on Spectrum TV about these Knitted Knockers and immediately ordered mine and couldn’t believe they were free. I was not expecting to receive them for awhile, but they arrived in about 2 or 3 weeks. They are beautifully knitted with soft yarn….too bad no one will see them! For my A cup, I had to take out quite a bit of the stuffing, but now I have the one side matching the other. It was best to take out a little at a time until I got it right. Now I’m ready to close them up. I cannot tell you how much more comfortable these are over the gel/silicone inserts. They will be GREAT this summer in the heat, because they don’t stick like the gel inserts and are so much cooler even now, and it’s not hot yet. Sometimes I sleep with it in my bra and can’t even tell it’s there. Never could have done that with gel/silicone inserts. Thank God I saw the show on Spectrum News. It changed how I feel about my breasts every single day when I look in the mirror and see they match in size now, and I am comfy and cool there. I will be sending in my donation to the ladies who made them. I even got the color I wanted! My husband got a big kick out of them, esp. the name, since he opened my package. It was so funny. Now we make jokes about how my knockers look. We’re still laughing about it! THANK YOU AGAIN! I am eternally grateful to ALL of you ladies involved in this.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!
My husband walked in today and said “you have a package.” As soon as I saw who it was from I started to cry. I immediately open the package and there they were. I had tears just rolling down my face. (Happy tears!) I had my double mastectomy in November with expanders put in. Long story short I got an infection so they had to remove my expanders. I was devastated. I absolutely hated the way I looked. Then my plastic surgeon mentioned about this wonderful amazing knitting group. Even before I left her office I was signing up to request a pair of “knockers”. And now I have them and absolutely love them. They are so comfortable so soft and love the fact I can customize them for the right size for me. They have gave me my self confidence back. I love, love them!! I can’t thank y’all enough for everything y’all are doing for me and everyone else that have gone/going through this!

I just received my knitted knockers and I am so happy I could cry. I had a mastectomy in January. I could not get fitted for a prosthesis until 6 weeks post op and then it takes weeks to make it. I have been wearing a sports bras with a round pad from the hospital. It has been so uncomfortable! My KK is so soft against my incision. I love the weight and I can wear a normal bra. Bless all you angels who knit these and provide them for free. You’ve made an immediate difference in my life. Thank you so much!

I was so happy to receive my kk after my left breast mastectomy in January, 2022. It is soft and very comfortable to wear. Thank you and bless the kk volunteers.
