I was diagnosed 2/7/2011, my youngest daughter’s birthday. I am the youngest of seven, and my mother was diagnosed in 1988. I had to have two lumpectomies before the decision to have a mastectomy. The first prosthetic was very heavy, and it appeared as if it didn’t fit, due to the way my shirt, and blouse fit. The second prosthetic was somewhat the same. The prosthetic I currently have, is larger, so much heavier, and I sweat so much more. I am excited about having something light weight, and breathable.
I had a double mastectomy on June 24th and today, July 22, I am wearing my Knitted Knockers in a Coobie bra! It is the first time since my surgery that I feel okay and good about myself. I am not having reconstruction for multiple reasons, but I feel whole agin with these on. Thank you so much!!!
Today, I went for my annual Mammogram and noticed a basket of hand made breasts, curious I picked one up and thought I would try it in my bra. WOW! after almost twelve years of feeling ugly and having one breast three inches smaller than the other because of Cancer I can now look in the mirror and not feel ugly. Thank you to Rachael for knitting my new lovely breast prosthetic. I am over the moon.
I am so grateful to Sara, who so kindly made my knitted knocker it is so soft and comfortable to wear and so light in weight compared to the silicone prosthesis supplied by the hospital. I feel comfortable and happy again…..thank you xx
Heartfelt thanks to Mandy L who made my beautifully knitted knocker.
It is gorgeous, soft to touch, light to wear and makes me feel good.
I love it.
I received my knitted knocker made for me by Doryn who also enclosed a lovely card. This knocker is absolutely fantastic it is so comfortable much better than the prosthesis supplied by the hospital. Can’t thank you enough Doryn for taking the time to knit this for me. The whole service is so fantastic thank you
I have been a cancer survivor since 2006 having a double mastectomy. I purchased expensive prosthetics which did not work for me as they were heavy and looked artificial. I found Knitted Knockers and ordered 2 pair and they have been a blessing. Not only do they appear natural, they are light and comfortable. I just ordered another pair as they are needing to be replaced. I try to always send a donation as soon and as much as I can. The ladies who make these are angels here on earth. Thank you each and every one.
I received my knitted knockers this morning. I would like to thank Angela for the two sets she sent me they are lovely, I have just been swimming with the water ones and to be honest they were better that the ones I paid £30 each for so I am eternally grateful.
thank you just doesn’t seem enough but thank you thank you thank you
I received mine this morning, I am lost for words, what a lovely caring service you offer. Lucy (who did mine) sent them beautifully wrapped with a lovely card and message. It’s made such a difference to me to know there are women who do this lovely thing for women who they don’t know and will never meet. Thank you so so much. Thank you Lucy. Xx
I received my Knitted Knockers from a very special friend named, Delisa and it is truly a work of love and is a perfect!!! I am so excited!!! I am the first female in my family to be diagnosed with breast cancer and who knew there would be a group of women who want other women to feel and look their best after undergoing a mastectomy, lumpectomy, etc. I had my surgical procedure on Dec 12 and contemplated reconstruction, however, after receiving my knitted knockers, I am now comfortable wearing blouses, shirts, vnecks, etc without the fear of others staring! This is an ABSOLUTE BLESSING! THANK YOU!!!!!!
