We know a mastectomy can be a both physically and mentally draining experience.
Imperial Valley Cancer Support Center provides free mastectomy bras and breast prostheses for persons who have undergone a partial or complete mastectomy to feel their best selves.
We are the only certified bra and prosthesis fitters in the Imperial Valley.
A mastectomy bra is one that features fabric pockets inside the bra cups, which can hold a breast prosthesis in place after mastectomy surgery. We also have post-surgical compression bras in a variety of styles.
We thoroughly assess our client's needs and preferences when choosing the right mastectomy bra. Clients are professionally fitted and provided with 2 bras free of charge.
For normal, daily wear mastectomy bras (not post-surgical), please allow 4-6 weeks after surgery for your incision site to heal before scheduling a fitting appointment.
Breast prostheses are typically used by women who have had their breast surgically altered or removed (mastectomy or lumpectomy) due to cancer. The forms are usually silicone and can be worn inside a specially designed mastectomy bra.
Like when choosing a mastectomy bra for our clients, they are thoroughly assessed and professionally fitted with a prosthesis that best suits their needs and aesthetic preferences.
