Winship Cancer Institute

I received  genetic counseling and had both my prophylactic mastectomy + reconstruction at Winship Cancer Institute. What makes Winship unique is that it is a research hospital, part of Emory and Georgia's NCI Comprehensive Cancer Center.

Loving Arms Cancer Outreach

Loving Arms supports families with a cancer diagnosis with up to $600 a year towards utilities and also features an education program.

Cancer.org

Cancer.org is all things cancer.

Bras

Finding a comfortable bra following a prophylactic mastectomy + reconstruction was extremely difficult. Bra seams landed on incisions while others just didn't support implants the right way due to the shape following surgery. Some of my favorite tried and true bras include: all things by AnaOno, Spanx wireless bras and Zensah Sports Bras (no chafing after a marathon!)

Susan G. Komen Foundation

Susan G. Komen is the ONLY organization that addresses breast cancer on multiple fronts such as research, community health, global outreach and public policy initiatives in order to make the biggest impact against this disease.

FORCE

FORCE is all things related to hereditary breast, ovarian, and related cancers.
