Zonta Breast Care Cushions

breast-cushionThe Zonta Breast Care cushions are a practical gift that expresses support and provides comfort to women (and men) in the post-operative phase of breast surgery. Zonta Clubs hold sewing bees to make these sought after cushions.

Cushions are supplied to most hospitals, some breast surgeon consulting rooms, breast care nurses, individuals who email Zonta, and friends of Zontians in need of a cushion. 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.

McGrath Breast Care Nurses help individuals (and their families) experiencing breast cancer by providing physical, psychological and emotional support. From the time of diagnosis, and throughout treatment, this support is available to you for free, whether you’re in the private or public health system. Support is available to you if you want it from Day 1 and for as long as you need it. To find your nearest McGrath Breast Care Nurse search the map on the McGrath Foundation website here and get in touch with them directly.
