I recently received an invitation to join a group. I receive invitations to join groups often but this one caught my eye. I was intrigued so I checked it out. This is what I found.
Knitted Knockers Knitting Circle for Mastectomy Patients (click to check it out and/or join us)
“Many women cannot afford the upfront cost the government requires to get their mastectomy bra’s,… and when they do, a lot find them too heavy or uncomfortable to wear. Knitted and Crocheted Knockers is an alternative to this problem. This group is looking for men and women who love to knit or crochet to make knitted knockers for women who cannot wear or cannot afford traditional mastectomy bras. If you would like to help or would like one or a pair please join and make someone’s day by giving them their breast(s) back and a smile on their face.”
So one brave woman who is living with breast cancer stepped forward and started this group on Facebook. I joined and I am glad I did. I haven’t crocheted any yet but will gladly give my time to do this. I never even thought about women having to buy these products. They even give these “made with love” items free just for asking. How much better could it be? I am so impressed.
The main page for the knitted knockers is here. It gives more info if you need it. I am hoping that I can find women like me who would love to share their crocheting talent and ability to help these brave women who need us. We can do this! I am so excited. Please check this out.
