Recovery can be a long road.


If we can make it just a fraction less rough, then we’ve done what we set out to do. We began to ensure that every woman and man who needs a post-operative recovery shirt and other comforting gifts receives our Comfort Kit. Everyone should be able to heal in comfort and dignity while battling breast cancer or other medical issues.

The Heal in Comfort recovery shirts we provide were created by Cherie Mathews, a 16-year breast cancer survivor who saw a need after her own surgery. Learn more about Heal In Comfort here.
