The Mastectomy Pillow You’ll Love

You’ll Love this Mastectomy Pillow… no doubt!

If you don’t already know, I have a slight obsession with Pinterest.

I can sit and pin things for HOURS! I’ll start off with nail polish colors and end up looking at “how to make a window garden in your apartment” Haha!

Believe it or not, I actually use Pinterest for work more than you think. Part of what goes into our education folders, which ends up going into our Feeling Beautiful Again bags are our Cards of Hope. Cards of Hope are just another extra step we take to make our bags even more personal by making handwritten cards with words of encouragement! Well, when you make thousands and thousands of cards you eventually have to turn to the internet for some fresh ideas and creative quotes. Just an idea we sent out over 11,000 bags in 2017. So to come up with a variety of quotes was definitely challenging.

Thus, began my journey of finding some fresh ideas and new quotes when I started wandering off through the endless amount of pins. I ended up coming across this specific pillow that I thought “Dang! That’s cool, it’s got little arm cutouts! I bet I could use this for road trips when I take naps,” because yes, I’m one of those people who has to hug a pillow when I sleep! So, I click the image to take me to the website and what do you know, the pillow was actually founded by a breast cancer survivor. You can ask my coworkers, I sat at my desk and was like “oh my gosh! I can’t believe I found this cool site, how come I’ve never heard of this place!” My days of aimlessly scrolling through Pinterest had finally brought some good.

For those of you who have never come across this page, like me, be sure to take a look! Pink Pepper offers a chest pillow that is a must have for breast cancer patients or anyone who is undergoing breast surgery. It’s perfect for after your mastectomy, reconstruction or any other breast surgery! They also have other products for breast cancer patients such as a special mastectomy recovery shirt that has pockets to hold your drains in place. Talking with breast cancer patients every day, one of the common things I hear is just how hard the recovery process can be, so what Pink Pepper is doing is absolutely amazing.

Pinterest, I thank you for being so amazing and for allowing products like the chest pillow to be found, so we can recommend these to our breast cancer patients! And, of course, once you’re done using the pillow post-surgery, you can also use it on road trips to take naps with 🙂
