With W&F's take time to transfer your goodie connections---visual, youtube, short stories etc., or even go and find things to post here. It's a place our sisters and brothers can come to when they are recovering from sx's , chemo's, rads.......or as time passes for those that this damnable disease causes them to be to weak to socialize, but they can find refuge in our wicked humor, peaceful thoughts, memories of past or present music. A diversity of things that affects our thoughts and makes the heart and soul happy. Tacky, weird, things that make us think, snort, gulp, spit your coffee, or pee your pants. So, when you post "whatever wherever " . Please, think about posting it here. The difference is few words. Everyone is welcome to post as long as they are playing nice :) sassy

I love my Knitted Knockers! They are light and soft and warm. Unlike my silicone prosthetic which is heavy and cold when first worn, then it later causes me to sweat.

I wear my knitted knockers inside a regular bra or tucked in the pocket of a mastectomy bra. They are beautiful, and a godsend to those of us with an uneven mastectomy scar.
