I have to tell you. I absolutely LOVE the bag I just received. I am going to present it and talk about your company on Wednesday morning at my next BNI (Business Networking International) meeting.
The whole bag was great. It is a great pick me up for patients. All positive…
Just to let you know, the bag arrived today and I love it! It is so cute and practical! When I ordered it I was preparing myself for a purely prophylactic bilateral mastectomy. Yesterday I received a breast cancer diagnosis. So receiving the bag via FedEx delivery was a real treat. Thanks again.
I sent one of the bags to my friend Jane who was having surgery at Dana Farber. I was amazed at talking with her that she really had not had a lot of education or support heading into her bilateral mastectomy this week. Here is the email I got from her brother Jim regarding her recovery: ‘Dear Jennie – thank you so much. Jane did incredibly well, and she is continuing to recover. She should be going home tomorrow. She brought her amazing [bag] with her to Dana Farber, showed us all, and mentioned several times how wonderful you have been to her. She (we!) are most appreciative! Thank you for everything. It means the world. XX Jim B.’ I am so excited that she took the bag with her to the hospital. It’s funny you sometimes wonder how much people really hear when you are working with them. This one was definitely a challenge since we our communication was either by phone or email. I also was never really sure if I helped her because she just seemed so overwhelmed each and every time I spoke with her.
My friend continued to use the pillow through all her further surgeries. She is currently cancer free and feeling really good. I am delighted that I was able to show my support by giving her the gift of comfort via the pillow.
My sister is having her lumpectomy tomorrow. Just knowing I could send her something from me and my brothers, was a huge relief. Thank you so much for overnighting the bag to her.
The drain care instructions and the organizer saved my mother. When she was in the hospital, the discharge nurses gave us instructions, but my mother was still under the influence of pain meds and did not register everything that they threw at her. I used the pad to write down some notes and then we went to your website. What a lifesaver.
Now I don’t have to worry about packing what I need, it is all here!
I recently had a double mastectomy and my plastic surgeon had put me in the Elizabeth pink surgical bra…her name is Dr.Constance Chen and her office is located in NYC…I am very fortunate that she chose this bra for me….It is very comfortable for every day use and especially to sleep in.
If you are looking for just the right thing for someone going in for a mastectomy, look no further. This bag had everything I needed and more! I love skinceuticals and all of the great stuff. I used the drain log and all of the supplies. This is a great, great gift for a friend with breast cancer.
The [recovery] bras are soft cotton with easy to button hooks, I love their fit and feel and they finally solved my post breast cancer pain and discomfort problems. I was depressed and my nails were broken and I was bald. My morale had hit zero when [Masthead] came to the rescue. I had given up wearing bras and was wearing old worn out cotton Ts to bed and outside. I was sad and felt less feminine than any time in my life. Masthead bras let me know somebody loving understood me and wanted to help and even had traveled through that wasteland before me and made it!!! If I were a billionaire I would donate every penny my family did not need to survive to helping further products like these amazing cancer recovery bras from this amazing company.
…donating to charitable organizations is great, but not as rewarding as knowing that you are actually helping someone through a difficult time. Purchasing these bags allows us to know that the money we are donating is going to help real people. Our $600 bought bags for INOVA in Virginia.
I wanted to let you know that the bag for [my friend] arrived today. I delivered it to her this evening and she was so appreciative. She had not begun to pack because she said she had no idea what she should take. She has two daughters 8 and 10 and she and her husband are taking them bowling tonight, just so they can have one last fun family night before she starts her battle with cancer. She only has cancer in one breast right now, but has tested positive for the cancer gene so they are doing the double mastectomy and immediate reconstruction. We are so grateful that we were able to give her a gift that would not only provide her with comfort and ease her hospital stay, but also eliminate the worry of trying to figure out what to take to the hospital. Thank you for the tremendous customer service you provided and going the extra mile to make sure the bag arrived in time for her to take it with her to the hospital.
Thank you SO MUCH for the wonderful heart pillow. I tucked it under my arm immediately and it felt so good!! Before its arrival, I kept saying I felt as if someone had kicked me in the armpit… probably from all the probing to get those sentinel nodes out. It is also a great prop for keeping my arm at a good height when sitting. Can you explain why they feel so good? Is it because the pilla allows the lymph nodes more space to function? Or perhaps, it is taking the pressure of the arm off the incision site?
My friend, Debbi, brought the bag to me after my surgery. It was so bright and cheery. I just had to write to you and let you know that this is the BEST idea! Better than flowers. Debbi and I played cards and I loved the wisp toothbrush—didn’t have to get out of bed. Keep up the great work.”
The pillow was the perfect gift for me after my mastectomy. It feels great and takes the pressure off my incision. My daughter came to visit me in the hospital and she borrowed it to rest her arm while nursing her baby!
Thank you so much for the beautiful bag of goodies… all the items have been so useful (and for so many more reasons than they are probably intended for). The axilla pilla has come in handy, not only for relieving pressure under my arm, but as a cushion for my son to lie on (rather than on me) while we read books at night. He used to lay on my chest and this has been great at “keeping us close” while having him lie more on my leg or side than on my chest. He calls it his “breast” for mommy’s boo boo. The skin care has also been a savior. Not only has it been helpful in keeping my skin healthy, but for some reason my skin has become very very sensitive on the back of my arms (my husband believes a nerve must be triggered) and it is helpful in soothing it and making clothes, etc., less irritating on that spot.
I wanted to update you on the pillow. It’s been 5 days since my surgery and I have used the pillow for about 3 days. I really like it. It’s soft and molds nicely under my arm. I like the heart shape, mostly because I place the “valley” at the top of the heart under my arm pit and it fits perfectly. The only time I find I need to make an adjustment is if I am sitting up as the pillow isn’t quite long enough to fit in under my arm and still reach the mattress. But, if I turn it sideways, it seems to work ok. I really, really like your product and have found it to be very helpful in my recovery. I want to thank you so so much for sending the pillows out to me so promptly. They arrived at just the right time.
THANK YOU for the wonderful bag! It was such a welcome treat to have it arrive prior to the surgery. I brought some of the goodies with me to the hospital and I’m enjoying the axilla pilla right now. The contents are so useful and pretty to open and touch.
My friend’s double mastectomy was put off for a few days due to more pressing surgeries (transplants.) She finally did have her surgery and continues to thank me about the pillow. It didn’t leave her side during the first few weeks, even with meds. She tells me it continues to be incredibly helpful right now in the car.
Thank you for all you have done!
When I came out of surgery, all I could think about was the awful taste in my mouth. So dry. I wanted to brush my teeth, but could not get out of bed. I found the amazing toiletries case and there was a WISP. I had never seen it before. What a great idea! My bag was such a lifesaver. I used just about everything, especially the drain care stuff.
My daughter gave me a heart shaped pillow after my back surgery. It was better than the narcotics at getting me comfortable in a chair. Thanks!
I received a [Masthead] gift package and was moved to tears with its thoughtfulness.
My friend sent me a breast bag and I have not been without the axilla pilla for the last 2 weeks. I can’t wait to get my drains out.
After my back surgery, I could not go anywhere without my axilla pilla. I used it in the car, in waiting rooms, and even to make it though my grandchildren’s swim meet.
