We're here for you during these uncertain times. For our latest video series we're bringing you thoughts and perspective from some of our most trusted partners in the breast cancer community. First, we're here with Jen Reynolds from Pink Warrior Angels Hill Country. We know cancer doesn't stop in the middle of a pandemic, which means there are still plenty of women in need. If you or someone you know is in need of a mastectomy bra, apply for one.
Here's how it works:
Pink Warrior Angels Hill Country has partnered with AnaOno to provide women with a donated mastectomy bra, should their finances not allow them to purchase one. These bras are funded by PWAHC and provided by AnaOno. Fill out an application here.
If you don't need a bra through the assistance program but would like to donate to PWA, head to our Facebook page to make a donation. A small donation of $25 provides one bra to a woman in need. You can also make a donation on their website.

Recovering from breast surgery can be challenging. Whether you’ve had a mastectomy, reconstruction, lumpectomy or augmentation, there’s bound to be some soreness and limited range of motion during this time. By prioritizing your comfort, however, you can make the process a little bit easier as you feel better each day. One of the best ways to make sure you’re comfortable during recovery is by choosing post-surgery clothing designed specifically for breast procedures. This will allow you to feel better as you heal and adjust to the changes to your body.
Our mission at AnaOno is to make sure patients, survivors and thrivers feel their best during recovery and beyond. Learn more about what makes for the best post-operation clothing and find out where to order some pieces for your own recovery or that of a loved one.

If you’ve been wearing traditional underwire bras for years, you might just assume that bras are naturally a bit uncomfortable. But that doesn’t have to be the case. There are a number of unique bra styles that can help you feel much more comfortable throughout the day, especially if you’re in recovery from a breast surgery or treatment, such as reconstruction, mastectomy, lumpectomy, augmentation or radiation. Fortunately, AnaOno offers plenty of guidance in finding the best post-surgery bra.
Dana had the chance to speak with Unite for HER Founder and CEO Sue Weldon about her organization. When Sue was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004, she began searching for information on therapies that would complement the medical treatments she was receiving. What she discovered was a lack of easily accessible resources on topics like nutrition, acupuncture, massage, yoga, counseling and other ways for breast cancer patients to enhance their wellness and care for their emotional, spiritual, and physical needs.
