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.
Since its establishment as a nonprofit organization in 2009, Unite for HER’s cornerstone has been to bridge that gap for breast cancer patients, focusing on wellness initiatives that will positively impact their health, as well as the health of all women and girls. Their mission is to enrich the health and well-being of those diagnosed with breast and ovarian cancers – for life – by funding and delivering integrative therapies.
As a friend, how can you help a loved one?
When a loved one, friend, or colleague is diagnosed with cancer, it is difficult to know what to say, do, or how to help. There is no instruction guide on how to provide support during a challenging time.
HER care box was developed by Unite for HER's team of medical and wellness professionals and is designed to help empower, educate, and bring balance to the emotional and physical well-being of those affected by breast or ovarian cancer during treatment and beyond. AnaOno products are offered in all size boxes.
HER care box is available to ship nationwide, so you can send the gift of care and provide support to women across the United States. Plus, 100% of all proceeds benefit Unite for HER’s Wellness Program, supporting women affected by breast and ovarian cancers in the Philadelphia region.

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.
