£695raised of £1,000 target by 27 supporters

Weʼre raising £1,000 to help make drain bags, mastectomy cushions, knitted boobs and any other aids for women and men who have had breast surgery.

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

This is me 4 hours after my mastectomy operation leaving hospital and having to carry a drain across the car park and to my home.

And this is me with a drain BAG!

I’m sure you can sympathise that after the trauma of such an operation, the worry of dropping the bag, leaving it behind on a chair (ouch!), the humiliation and embarrassment is the last thing I need to focus on.

I now have a bag but many don’t and I need to change that! Rotherham District Hospital do not supply any due to lack of funds but the nurses there will happily give them out. I also want to be able to provide other hospitals that need them.

I also intend to post out as many drain bags, pillows, knitted boobs and other aids to women and men all over the country. Please help me to achieve this by donating what you can, a little will go a long way.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart (well bosom! lol)
