HATE TO TALK ABOUT IT BUT CANCER HAS A WAY OF INFILTRATE OUR LIVES EVEN IF YOU HAVE NEVER RECEIVED A DIAGNOSE PERSONALLY YOU MAY HAVE A FAMILY MEMBER OR MAYBE EVEN A FRIEND WHO’S BATTLED THE DISEASE MAYBE YOU’VE LOST A LOVED ONE TO CANCER OR MAYBE YOU FIND OUT A CO-WORKER IS A CANCER SURVIVOR. WELL TODAY WE WANT TO TELL YOU THE STORY OF TWO WOMEN NEITHER HAVE HAD CANCER BUT BOTH HAVE SEEN WHAT IT CAN DO AND ALTHOUGH THEY HAVEN’T KNOWN EACH OTHER FOR VERY LONG THEY’VE COME TOGETHER WITH ONE COMMON GOAL TO MAKE THOSE FIGHTING BREAST CANCER FEEL MORE COMFORTABLE AND BEAUTIFUL THIS IS MARGE CARL BELLOWS BREAST FRIEND YOU HEARD RIGHT BREAST FRIEND IT’S A SUPPORTIVE FORM FITTING BREAST PILLOW FOR WOMEN. I FEEL LIKE I’VE BEEN PUT ON EARTH. YOU KNOW IT’S JUST TOO HELP PEOPLE COMFORT PEOPLE SUPPORT WOMEN THE BREAST FRIEND WAS SOMETHING CALVILLO DESIGNED FOR HERSELF SO THAT SHE COULD BECOME COMFORTABLE LAYING ON THE BEACH FOLLOWING NON-CASH INTEREST BREAST SURGERY. I HATE TO DIG IN THE SAND AND WHEN I’M HERE TO THE BEACH I HATE LAYING ON MY BELLY AND IT’S FOR COMFORT WHEN YOU’RE LAYING ON YOUR BELLY. BUT SHE SAW A NEED FOR THERAPEUTIC BREAST FRIEND FOR WOMEN WHO HAVE HAD RECENT SURGERY FOLLOWING A BREAST CANCER DIAGNOSIS SO SHE DESIGNED A BREAST FRIEND WITH MORE PADDING AND POCKETS FOR HOT OR COLD GEL PACKS YOU KNOW WOMEN JUST WELCOME THESE KIND OF PRODUCTS. ELISA LAWSON HAS WORKED WITH BREAST CANCER PATIENTS AS A PROSTHESES SPECIALIST FOR SEVERAL YEARS A MUTUAL FRIEND WHO IS ALSO A BREAST CANCER SURVIVOR AND HER DEUCE HER TO MARGE. SHE KNEW THAT I WAS ANXIOUS TO EXPAND ON THE EASTERN SHORE BECAUSE I’D BEEN WORKING HERE ANYWAY AND WORKING OUT OF A SUITCASE AND THERE’S A PRETTY PRETTY GOOD POPULATION OF WOMEN DOWN HERE THAT ARE DEALING WITH BREAST CANCER OR DEALING WITH BREAST SURGERY AND I HAD MENTIONED TO HER THAT ONE OF THESE DAYS SINCE WE HAVE A HOME HERE THAT THIS IS GOING TO BE WHERE I KIND SETTLE DOWN AND HAVE SOMETHING TO KEEP MYSELF BUSY YOU KNOW AS TIME GOES ON WE CALLED WE GOT TOGETHER THE NEXT DAY AND WE’VE BEEN TALKING EVER SINCE. MARGE ALREADY HAD THE BLUSHING BEAUTY BOUTIQUE IN WEST OCEAN CITY. ALISA HAD A FULL LINE POST MASTECTOMY PRODUCTS SUCH AS BRAS AND PROSTHESES FITTINGS AND SWIM WEAR. TOGETHER THEY TURNED THE SHOP INTO A WOMEN’S HEALTH BOUTIQUE. WE GOT EXCITED ABOUT YOU KNOW FIXING IT UP AND DOING ALL THESE GIRLY THINGS TO BE ABLE TO BRING THE SAME CUSTOMER INTO THE SHOP THAT IS GOING TO LOOK FOR HER PRODUCT AS WELL AS BE ABLE TO SHOP FOR EVERYTHING I HAVE HERE TOO. IN THE 21 YEARS THAT ALISA HAS BEEN SELLING POST MASTECTOMY PRODUCTS SHE SAYS SHE HAS FOUND THAT A SHOP LIKE THIS WAS NEEDED IN THE AREA WOMEN ONCE THEY’VE HAD BREAST SURGERY. THEY DON’T WANT FEEL LIKE THEY HAVE TO GO TO A DRUGSTORE OR THEY HAVE TO GO SOMEWHERE ELSE ORDER SOMETHING ONLINE OR GO TO SOMETHING THAT’S VERY CLINICAL LOOKING TO DO THE KIND OF THINGS THAT ARE VERY FASHIONABLE FOR THE REST OF US WHETHER IT’S SWIMWEAR OR WHETHER IT’S PRETTY SLEEPWEAR WHETHER IT’S PRETTY BRAS THEY SHOULD BE ABLE TO WALK INTO A STORE AND SHOP FOR THOSE PRODUCTS AND SEE THEM SHOWCASED AND NOT BROUGHT OUT FROM THE BACK ROOM OR PULLED OUT FROM A DRAWER. AND THIS ENVIRONMENT GIVES THEM THAT KIND OF AN ENVIRONMENT SO I THINK IT’S GONNA BE REALLY AWESOME. AND JUST LIKE THE BREAST FRIEND LINE THE SWIMWEAR BRAS AND OTHER APPAREL COME IN FASHIONABLE COLORS THE TOPS HAVE POCKETS FOR PRESTIGE SEAS WHICH CAN BE CUSTOM FITTED AND PURCHASED HERE AS WELL. GIVING WOMEN WHO MAY HAVE THOUGHT THEY WOULD NEVER FEEL BEAUTIFUL AGAIN HOPE I HAVE THE KIND OF JOB THAT I LOVE GOING TO WORK EVERY DAY AND I LOVE WORKING WITH THESE PATIENTS. I LOVE THERE’S SO MANY TEARS THAT GO ON IN A FITTING WHEN YOU TURN SOMEBODY AROUND IN FRONT MIRROR AND YOU PUT A PROSTHESES ON THEM AND THEY’RE WHOLE AGAIN AND THEY’RE BETTER THAN THEY EVER THOUGHT THEY WERE GONNA BE IT’S JUST SO REWARDING YOU HATE THAT YOU GET SUCH SATISFACTION WITH SOMETHING THAT’S SO REWARDING BUT EVERYBODY’S HAPPY THE PATIENT’S HAPPY I’M HAPPY YOU KNOW AND THAT’S ALL THAT REALLY MATTERS. YOU KNOW THEY’RE GETTING WHAT THEY NEED AND I’M THE ONE THAT CAN GIVE IT TO THEM THAT MAKES YOU FEEL REALLY GOOD AT THE END OF THE DAY. WHAT A DYNAMIC DUO NOW? LISA SAYS THE PROSTHESES AND BRAS ARE COVERED BY INSURANCE AND THAT’S CERTAINLY
