Be Uplifted Inc volunteers create crocheted breast prostheses for breast cancer patients in a cup sizes A to DD. These external breast prostheses provide the look and shape of a breast and are free to breast cancer survivors and breast cancer patients.
Crocheted Knockers are a comfortable option for women who have undergone a single or bilateral mastectomy or other breast cancer-related procedures (such as a lumpectomy) and want to fill the gap in their chest.
These can be used as temporary prostheses while scars are healing or as a long-term solution for women who cannot afford expensive permanent silicone prostheses which can cost up to $500 each.
Our crocheted breast prostheses are always in great demand.
If you are talented with a crochet hook and would like to join our team of volunteers and help us create more of our much loved Crocheted Knockers, your crafty skills would be greatly appreciated.
