I recently became involved with an amazing group of volunteers called Awesome Breastforms. You may already know if you have been following me any length of time, but this is a cause that is near and dear to my heart. My mom is a breast cancer survivor coming up on her 5 year mark and I am loving helping other women. These knitters and crocheters have joined ranks to help provide women get their curves back. We provide breastforms absolutely free of cost to the recipient. As volunteers, we buy yarn, give our time to lovingly hand make the breastforms and then pay shipping to send them “home”. We are shipping all over the world and changing lives one woman at a time! We have also started making swim forms as well.

I love my mom. She is a strong woman.

My mom is a breast cancer survivor. She underwent a double mastectomy and reconstruction and chemo and now deals with the lymphedema from the removal of lymph nodes when she had her mastectomy. She has been cancer free now for three years as of the end of June so she has a little less than 2 years to go until she will be considered at less risk for recurrence. She lives in Houston so most of the time doesn’t have to deal with really cold weather but still needs something on her head when it does get cool. Also, her hair is still wispy so during warmer months when she is out and about she needs to protect her head.
