Meet our Never Alone community member, advocate, and social media queen Bianca! Bianca has been a part of the Never Alone community for a while now, first by modeling, but more recently she has taken over our social media and man is she killing the game! Let's give it up for Bianca!
I sat down with Lori Bush, mother, wife, cancer survivor and co-founder of Solvasa to talk more about how cancer lead her to create Solvasa. Lori is an inspiration to all of us at AnaOno which is why I want to share her story with you, never give up because you are never alone.
AnaOno stands with the women of Ukraine and extends our hearts to the communities of people affected by the war. We are partnering with our Ukrainian factory to bring you a special underwear collection curated by in-house brand, Memème, to fundraise for humanitarian aid.
"Mother’s Day is a bittersweet topic in our community.
Growing up, I always assumed I would have children. That’s just what everyone does when they get older, right? You get married and start a family.
However, right after college I had a rude awakening. I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I immediately had a double mastectomy (taking away any chance I had of breast feeding) and then started chemo, which for a lot of cancer patients, causes us to become infertile.
I never thought that in my 20’s I would face such a life altering experience.
There’s a lot more to wearing bras with breast cancer than your first surgical bra. Your body and your needs will change after every procedure or treatment method. Whether that’s radiation, lumpectomy, single or double mastectomy, or even reconstruction. We want you to know that for any stage you are in we are here to help. From pocketed bras for forms to comfortable bras after reconstruction, we have the right breast cancer bras for you.
We know firsthand the harsh effects of chemo, and just how difficult it can be to get through treatment and still feel like you have control over your body. We believe that being comfortable is the number one priority when going through tough treatments. You deserve to feel as pampered as possible. At AnaOno, we have the perfect bras for every single stage of treatment and recovery you go through, and the chemotherapy phase is no exception.
If you’re having surgery because your treatment for breast cancer includes a single or double mastectomy, you may be curious about mastectomy bras. Mastectomy bras are specially designed for after these procedures to make you more comfortable, because afterwards, your breast shape changes.
It is hard to feel sexy when your whole world feels entirely un-sexy: Your breasts have been unceremoniously removed from your mastectomy, you’ve lost all of your hair, your eyelashes, and are battling with medically induced menopause and vaginal dryness. But when you ARE in a space to re-discover and reclaim your sexuality post-diagnosis, there are some different creative ways you can begin to rediscover your sexual self in safe, beautiful ways.
Looking for mastectomy gift ideas for someone newly diagnosed with breast cancer? We are here to help you support them with a thoughtful care package that will show your family member, best friend, co-worker, or neighbor that you care and are there for them no matter what!
When you hear a loved one has cancer, your first instinct may be to get them a gift. That’s a great, thoughtful gesture! But it’s important to note that not all gifts are uplifting or helpful. In fact, some gifts may even be harmful for a cancer patient. Here’s what you need to know about the worst gifts for cancer patients, and we’ll also offer some helpful alternatives to shop instead.
