Hi Angela and Florenda~
A BIG thank you to the both of you from Cancer de Mama and the many grateful Mexican ladies for you support.
This past week, I had the opportunity to seve in a community projcet, the Cancer de Mama Clinica (Breast Cancer Clinic), which was held in the town of La Penita which affected me both emotionall and spiritually. Over 300 women were fitted and provided with prosthesis in three days. Women came from as far away as Guadalajara, a four hour plus trip. Breast prosthesis are almost non-existent in Mexico. The prosthesis were hand knit by volunteers. They provide a very natural look, being lighter, comfortable and more durable for this climate. There were more than a hundred colunteers serving in different capacites. The women cancer survivors ranged in age from late twenties to early seventies. To see the womens' joy, tears and laughter, when they were able to see themselves once again complete, was an experience I will remember for a long time. A local female physian told me, "Mexican women lose big in three was with Breast Cancer: they lose their breasts, their hair and some their husbands." Breast cancer carries a stigma here, especially in the rural areas, with many husbands abandoning their wives.
Mammogram machines are hard to locate here, making preventative care impossible. We take so much for granted in the United States and Canada; we need to be thankful daily for the Health Care we have available. Another young lady handed her fitter a note which said, "God bles the hands that gave me a beautiful life again. Thank you." This shares some of the Mexican ladies thoughts; just think of the lives you have touched and I thank you for that and look forward to your continued support.
Keep in touch,
Just wanted to say that I received my beautiful "red" bra this afternoon. Of course I had to put it on right away and show and tell my other half. Thank you so much for all the fabulous service, fitting and care you have taken with me to fit me so well. I won't go anywhere else to get my bras and I hope to see you in may for "other stuff".
Thanks again --just love the bra.
Hi Ladies ~
I just wanted to thank you both for the MOST enjoyable bra shopping experience ever!! I not only came home with the BEST bra's but had FUN purchasing them!! You have amazing knowledge and your experience is priceless to your customers.
After leaving your shop, I went to work and immediately changed into the "blue" bra and looked at myself in the mirror about 20 times that afternoon....the minute I got home, I put on my yoga bra and LOVED it!!!!!! Today I've got the "black" (don't know the names yet) one and again, keep looking at my breasts in the mirror (thru the clothes...)
I also wanted to give you the name of the lady who referred me to your store. It's Maria Steelman. Without her suggestion of checking you out, I would not have come...just because I didn't know about you.
THANKS AGAIN, for an enjoyable experience, lifting not only my spirits (as you say) not only drawing my name for the contest, but also FINALLY FINALLY helping me buy the RIGHT bra that actually makes me feel AWESOME!!!
I look forward to the invite for October and will be at your store again soon!! Want to check out the "hormonal lingerie" and bring in my old bra's....

I wanted to send a note to express my appreciation for you dedication to service. I hate trying on bras. Being pregnant I knew I had to take the jump. When Flip suggested I try a D cup I thought she was crazy as normally I am a small B cup, okay A cup! To my amazement the first bra I tried on fit and felt amazing! Flip even made some alterations so I could use them for breastfeeding. It is a pleasure to know that one can receive such amazing service. My sincere thanks and admiration.
