“Women are under such pressure to look a certain way that they must undergo this pain after a traumatic surgery. That’s why I decided to make crocheted or knitted prostheses," says⁠
Jayashree Ratan.⁠

Jayashree Ratan creates crocheted #prostheses for #breastcancer survivors.⁠

Made from 100 per cent mercerised cotton yarn, these prostheses are soft on the skin and do not cause allergies.
While each can be used for nearly two years, these washable hands fit well into the mastectomy bra.⁠

“We never knew we would touch so many lives by spending just a few hours on each product. That is our biggest reward,” says Jayashree.⁠

Sharsheret - for people of all faiths to find financial and emotional support. I was matched with a social worker who sent a care pack and matched me with a mentor
Gilda's Club - I was incredibly overwhelmed at diagnosis but soon landed at my local chapter. Since I've utilized creative writing and art workshops, survivorship support, and even a free turkey at Thanksgiving

One of the most laughable things I’ve realized is people hosting Race for the Cure runs for #breastcancer but serving sugar laden donuts & cookies after. If they really want to help w/ cancer they should promote a lifestyle of zero sugar & fasting instead….but that’s not fun.
Another one is #Alzheimer fundraisers, again w/ alcoholic drinks & sugary food at the events, which totally contribute to dementia & poor brain cognition. But people want a photo dump of them “working” for a cause even if their efforts contradict good health. They need a party.
Because it’s not “really” about health, for if it were, they’d do their own research to see the food & drinks they’re serving actually contribute to these diseases. It’s about people being conditioned by Pharma & allopathic medicine & being clueless about how to heal from them.

#WomensHealthcare needs serious attention, specifically patient comfort. There are procedures that the patient is given no anesthesia for that are down right medieval. For example, lets visit something called an endometrial biopsy, a procedure that detects uterine cancer… 1
1You will be asked to undress fully or from the waist down and put on a hospital gown.
2You will be told to empty your bladder before the procedure.
3You will lie on an exam table, with your feet and legs supported as for a pelvic exam…
4. Your healthcare provider will insert an instrument called a speculum into your vagina to spread the walls of the vagina apart to view the cervix.
5. Your provider will clean your cervix with an antiseptic solution….

"Traición de la naturaleza"
(La lucha contra el cáncer de mama).

Un día, la naturaleza llevó la lucha por la supervivencia a los senos de la mujer. Atentó contra uno de los símbolos más sagrados que posee el ser humano, y golpeó, con saña, a nuestras madres.
Sin herramientas ni fármacos, otra vez la piedra del conocimiento debió tallarse rudimentariamente por siglos, para equilibrar la balanza. Indefenso, el hombre tuvo que cortar, y echó mano de los vestigios ancestrales de lo que hoy es la cirugía. Cortó, a destajo, cuerpo y alma.
La mastectomía apareció en el siglo II, d.C. siempre seguida del fuego ardiente que cauterizaba los vasos sangrantes; obvio no sería suficiente. 1200 años después empezaron a retirar los ganglios linfáticos axilares, tras entender que tendían a infestarse por el cáncer.

#breastCancerAwarenessMonth ramblings: I've been thinking about the words #fighter/#warrior/etc for #cancer patients recently. These thoughts have to go somewhere so here they are.
I'm one of the people these words apply to. Or they don't, idk.
If you don't know, I was diagnosed with #breastCancer in the spring of 2020, right on time for the first wave of the corona virus hitting my home.
It was a horrible time and it still often enough is.
I've used the fighter imagery, the hashtags #fightLikeAGirl and #strongAF and I have a bracelet that says "warrior" gifted to me by my sis for the first post-C Christmas that makes me ridiculously proud. Yet I know the flaws in that metaphor.
