Collection for Cancer de Mama

August 15, 2018

Hello all lymphedema patients, therapists, and supporters!

LAM is collecting used bandages and garments and donating them for repurposing, to a not-for-profit clinic, Cancer de Mama, serving breast cancer survivors who have no resources to pay for treatment or supplies.

Items needed:

Compression sleeves and gloves

Compression bandages

Gently used prostheses

Prosthetic bras (foam & underwire okay)

Regular bras (no foam please): desperately need 34B; 36 38 and 40 in B&Cs

Sports bras

Dark wigs (no grey or blond please), oblong scarves and summer weight hats

Warm shawls

(Please note foam is not needed due to a large donation recently received)

Begin collecting now, and give your used articles a second purpose.

Please wash bandages prior to donating; they will be sanitized before distributing.

Please bring your donations to LAM's AGM being held on October 25, 2018 at Riverwood Square.

LAM was alerted to this need via a few local individuals who volunteer for this cause. For more information about Cancer de Mama, visit their website at http://www.cancerdemamaclinic.com
