Breast Prostheses & Bras

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

Knitted Knockers

Knitted Knockers are affordable hand knitted breast prostheses for women who have undergone mastectomies, or similar breast procedures.

They are softer and lighter than other prostheses, comfortable to wear and can be placed in any regular bra. They are available in a variety of colours, to suit various skin tones.

Knitting volunteers may purchase the kits for R60, from our CANSA Care Centres.

Once the prostheses are knitted, they may be dropped off at the Care Centres and are distributed to cancer patients in need, free of charge.

Order Kits / Queries:

Contact Sandra Blignaut to order your kit, or if you would like to make a donation to CANSA to enable the purchase of more kits.
