I didn't like getting my first prosthesis that was a insult to me, so getting this as a gift I would love to try something new. The prosthesis is bulkly, heavy and makes me sweat, anything might be better then the real thing.

My breast prosthesis cost over $400. Perhaps this is a cost effective alternative solution for some? I'm sure it is not given out like a prize for having a mastectomy but an aid for those who could use or need it. Thank you to knitted knockers for giving of your time to those who are struggling, we should have more generous souls in the world.

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 ofRead More handling out crocheted body parts

You might want to lay off the salt.... A nasty attitude isn't very becoming.

These are made with love and conpassion for the recipient. They are not a tasteless gift. They are a soft, comfortable prosthetic. They are requested, not given out randomly. Why are you looking up a fake boob pattern anyway??

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 thisRead More 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.

Please google Knitted Knockers and go to their site to learn more about this group. It is a wonderful thing that they are doing!

Better yet, visit Awesome Breastforms. Much classier and more compassionate. )

Awesome Breastforms declined my application to volunteer for their cause because I would not send a friend request (which would allow her access to the entirety of what I share, including pictures of my child) to the founder on facebook. I would like to retain my personal life and things I share to those whom I have a close connection with. I have fewer than 100 friends on facebook, and only with those people am I comfortable sharing my life.

Amazing idea!! where do I find more info on this?
