Do you sew? Help a mastectomy patient by making a comfort cami.
The cami is a stretchy cotton top with inside pockets to contain the post-op drains. This simple garment provides comfort and peace of mind to a patient during the day and especially at night as they try to find a comfortable position for sleeping.
Mastectomy drains are typically worn for two weeks after the surgery. Tubing is inserted near the incision and hangs down about 18 inches, ending in a specially designed bulb that collects excess fluid from the surgical site. If that sounds uncomfortable...it is!
It costs about $15 to make one cami and takes about 2.5 hours of time, This is a beginner level sewing project. Pease visit our Get Involved page to complete the volunteer sign-up form. Don't sew? You can support us by making a donation!
