ABOUT THE BREAST CARE PROGRAM
“I was completely lost and ended up spending hundreds of dollars on ill-fitting bras and prostheses that were not right for me.”
- Breast cancer survivor and LGFB participant
The Look Good Feel Better workshop teaches valuable tools and techniques on skincare, hair and eyebrow loss, make-up tips and cosmetic hygiene to help women manage the appearance-related effects of cancer and its treatment.
Anita Canada is proud to support the new Breast Care Program, offered in select workshops, that helps women feel confident in returning to everyday activities, be it swimming, running, feeling comfortable in their clothes, or hugging their loved ones after breast cancer.
This segment of the workshop provides tips and resources on appropriate wear and fit for everyday bras during treatment and into recovery, while also providing detailed information on post-surgical bras and prostheses.
Included in the traditional two-hour workshop, this 10-minute segment is open to women facing all types of cancer. Women not facing breast cancer have shared that they find the fitting information helpful and are eager to pass along the knowledge they have learned!
THE BREAST CARE PROGRAM EMPOWERS WOMEN WITH GREATER INFORMATION TO HELP THEM FEEL MORE LIKE THEMSELVES. WHAT YOU WILL LEARN:
- Fitting tips for all women
- Bra options for post-surgery and radiation, compression and post-mastectomy bras
- Breast forms/Prostheses
- Initial and reconstruction breast forms
- How to prepare for a fitting and what to expect
