Traditional breast prosthetics are usually expensive, heavy, sweaty and uncomfortable. They typically require special bras or camisoles with pockets and can’t be worn for weeks after surgery. Knitted Knockers on the other hand are soft, comfortable, beautiful, and when placed in a regular bra they take the shape and feel of a real breast. Our special volunteer knitters will provide these free to those requesting them. Knitted Knockers can be adjusted to fill the gap for breasts that are uneven and easily adapted for those going through reconstruction by simply removing some of the stuffing. The purpose is to offer them to any woman who wants them, free of charge, there is a huge demand. It would be great if our members, friends, family could support this project. If you don’t knit, this would be a great time to learn, we have members willing to teach those wanting to learn or you may know someone who would be willing to teach you. Since our last announcement, through the efforts of the Nurse Navigators at the Tansey Breast Center, the Knitted Knockers.org website now has a Louisiana group “NOLA Knitted Knockers. If you need a pattern, I can mail or email it to you. If you know of someone who needs a Knitted Knocker, have them call our office and we will put them in touch with the Nurse Navigators. This would be a perfect opportunity to “pay it forward”. Please contact our office if interested in knitting, learning to knit, or would like to request a Knitted Knocker. Thanks in advance.
