This is nuts! I am struggling with a rare disease and if some random person gave me a tasteless gift like this from a vulgarly named organization I would be hurt and angry . And speaking for the disabled community, it's upsetting that so many people get wrapped up into cosmetic issues and don't really care about the more important issues, like possibility dying. I guarantee that if you offered help to someone that is ill, nine times out of ten they would ask for help with running errands or tending to the children, not asking for a homemade body part that is useless anyway . Also I would like to stress that if you are interested in doing something just to get a pat on the back, then you belong in girl scouts. If you want to help ill/disabled people then try to learn how to relate to them instead of handling out crocheted body parts.

I can sympathize with both sides of the argument. I come from a family of mostly women and I've witnessed the struggle, pain, agony, and death of all of those in my family that have suffered through several different types of cancer. When I saw this I reserved my judgement (and I still am). I immediately thought this would be for some patients/survivors, and not for others and the one's who do mind it may be in a position where they are still very vulnerable and could feel insulted and possibly belittled by it. Then there are those who may look at this and say what a neat and sweet thing. This may save some the struggle they may have with getting a real prosthethic. More power to you all who have to face this. You never know what you may have to face day to day and maybe this could be just one of those things that make your everyday struggle a bit easier. Peace and blessings.

I have to admit when I first seen this I was really not sure. But I went to the website of knitted knockers and was just amazed at the compassion and great love these people have for helping others.

You're kidding, right? As someone who has "been there, done that and bought the t-shirt" I gotta tell you I find this to be less than amusing and certainly not something I would feel honored to get nor would I remotely consider making one for any of my friends who have also had mastectomies. IMHO, this is wrong on so many levels. About the only thing it might be good for is a pin cushion (do women still use those?) and even then, I don't think I'd use it. While many of us can joke about what we have been thru (and do ... a lot) and believe laughter is the ONLY way to work thru this stuff, I can't even find anything funny to say about these things let alone believe someone would take it seriously. And "Knitted Knockers"? Good gawd.
