Breast Prostheses & Bras

Having a mastectomy is a traumatic experience, and we know how a breast cancer patient’s confidence can be restored when she is fitted with a prosthesis and bra that suits her body type and shape.

M Store

CANSA has partnered with the M Store extending its service to include the fitting of breast prostheses, supply of mastectomy reconstruction & lumpectomy bras, and supply of lymphoedema garments, to restore femininity, confidence and comfort to women after a mastectomy, lumpectomy or breast reconstruction.

Bookings for M Store fittings:

Medical aid patients: automatically qualify for a breast prosthesis and 2 mastectomy bras under their prosthesis benefit.

Cash paying patients: purchasing the standard package of a breast prosthesis and mastectomy bra will receive a second bra free.

Lymphoedema Garments

Knitted Knockers

Knitted Knockers are hand knitted breast prostheses for women who have undergone mastectomies, or similar breast procedures. They are softer and lighter than any other prosthesis, comfortable to wear and can be placed in any regular bra.

Kits cost R60 and are available from our CANSA Care Centres. The kits are given to ladies in need, free of charge, or if they are able to give a small donation, towards helping us buy more kits!

Volunteers, patients or other interested parties use the kit contents to knit the prostheses and drop it off at their local CANSA Care Centre for distribution to hospitals and patients in need.
