Hello…I heard about Knitted Knockers on KIRO Radio 97.3 and it peaked my curiosity. I just looked up their website and it truly makes me want to cry because I am so moved by the testimonials, and the generosity of all the people involved!
Knitted Knockers are special handmade breast prosthesis for women who have undergone mastectomies or other procedures to the breast. Traditional breast prosthetics are usually expensive, heavy, sweaty and uncomfortable. They typically require special bras or camisoles with pockets and can’t be worn for weeks after surgery. Knitted Knockers on the other hand are soft, comfortable, beautiful and when placed in a regular bra they take the shape and feel of a real breast. Special volunteer knitters provide these free to those requesting them. Knitted knockers can be adjusted to fill the gap for breasts that are uneven and easily adapted for those going through reconstruction by simply removing some of the stuffing.
The purpose of their website is to help connect volunteer knitters with breast cancer survivors to offer free Knitted Knockers to any woman who wants them. There is a huge demand for Knitted Knockers that can’t be met by any one group but together we can do it! If someone in each area will set a goal of meeting the need in just their county it can happen!
Their website provides patterns to knit or crochet knockers. Women can also come and request a Knocker in the size and color they want. In addition, they provide a how to guide on how to start your own Knitted Knocker group in your area. Explore their Testimonials page to see how knitted knockers have affected others or to leave your own feedback. We also have tips on how to set up displays and provide knockers to your local doctors and clinics for distribution to women… along with links to groups in your area.
Together we can in a simple, loving way bring a smile to women at a low point in their life.
I love, love, love this video I attached below…please watch! And, pass on the information to anyone in need of a “Knitted Knocker”. Thank you Barbara Demorest, Founder of KnittedKnockers.org, you are truly an angel on Earth!
