Hi

I have some BC stuff that I no longer need and would like to donate to someone in need. If anyone here is interested or knows someone who could use it, please let me know. This is what I have:

Anita prosthesis (chicken cutlet) size 6/85. Still in the original box with warranty card although that probably wouldn't help :) Lightly used.

2 camisoles for after surgery with the velcro up the front. They are both by Gentle Touch and are size Large. One is white with pink ribbon edging and the other is cream colored with cream ribbon edging. I also have the foam inserts that go with these camisoles that you can add or subtract stuffing as needed. Camisoles were worn. Inserts never used.

1 Anita camisole that is a thicker beige cotton with the pockets for breast forms as well as pockets for drains. Lightly used.

2 silk type camisoles for when you want to dress up a bit and go out. They also have pockets for drains. One is white with a lace overlay on it and the other is a simple black silk look. They are from Look Better Than You Feel and are size Small/Medium. Both are lightly used, maybe half a dozen times.

1 Amoena Nipple Set that you can stick on. They are size Large, color is Almond. These were opened and looked at but never used.


I really want this stuff to go somewhere it can be used and appreciated. None of the charities in my area will take any of it since it's been used. They tell me throw it in a donation box somewhere and hope for the best. All of these items were fairly expensive but I was lucky in that insurance paid for most of it and family bought me the rest. Let me know if interested and I'll ship to you.

I hope someone sees this post and can use these items - they are expensive and it's a shame for them to go to waste. Thank you for donating them Lala.

I will need camisoles for sure but not until late July. I'm a size medium and I have no idea how to size the cutlets. Would these be too big for me

jlstacey---I'm so sorry but I just mailed these out yesterday!! I posted about them in the unilateral mastectomy forum and they were picked up pretty quick! Thanks for checking and if you ask on some of the other forums, I'm sure there are people who have lots of stuff. Someone said there is a woman on these forums who collects and distributes items. Maybe check with the moderators?
