Zonta Breast Care Cushions

breast-cushionThe Zonta Breast Care cushions provide comfort to women (and men) in the post-operative phase of breast surgery. Cushions are supplied to most hospitals in each Area. Distribution in hospitals is by Breast Care Nurses. Throughout the year Zonta Clubs in this District and others in Australia hold sewing bees to make these sought-after cushions. The feedback received from recipients has been positive, with one woman noting that receiving the cushion was a turning point for her in helping to change her outlook and feel more positive.

The Zonta Club of Redcliffe in Queensland has produced an informative DVD called ‘Side by Side‘, specifically designed for newly diagnosed breast cancer patients. It comprehensively covers all stages of the breast cancer journey and doesn’t just focus on one aspect of treatment.
