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.
Many women find permanent silicone prostheses are heavy and can be uncomfortable to wear. They are not suitable for swimming.
Our soft prostheses are light, cool and comfortable to wear and are a wonderful alternative for women who cannot afford to purchase permanent prostheses or who do not like to wear heavy prostheses. They create symmetry in the chest without the burden of hot, heavy silicone.
At Be Uplifted Inc a small team of talented and enthusiastic volunteers crochet soft and comfortable breast prostheses in cup sizes A to DD. And they struggle to keep up with demand!
