Heal in Comfort and with Dignity!

Cherie B. Mathews, a 16 year breast cancer survivor turned a bad situation into a crusade – helping others heal in comfort and dignity during a difficult time in their lives…


Here’s what a few of them had to say about the healincomfort recovery shirt:

“I loved the recovery shirt!
I’m a nurse and I know that these kinds of things make a big difference to making people feel better in that healing time. Well done!”


“I cannot believe that it took so long for someone to make this post-operative shirt for breast cancer patients! I wish there was one when my grandmother had her mastectomy.”


“I can’t believe how much easier and more comfortable I am with my shirt for this surgery than I did without one for my first. Thank you so much for creating this!”


“Another surgery this Monday, thank goodness I have this incredibly comfortable shirt I bought to recover in. If you know anyone going through breast cancer surgery the recovery shirt is a must have.”

“This patient clothing is brilliant! We always used safety pins for the JP drains. Needless to say, this is a wonderful idea and I hope every patient in the world wears one — they should! Anything to improve patient outcomes is a welcomed addition. Pain Control, functional clothing and comfort are vital components. Make an unpleasant experience as pleasant as possible will be greatly appreciated by patients and their families.”

“I am so thankful for this Heal In Comfort Recovery shirt. It was very useful post surgery to have the pockets for drains and the velcro for easy access. It made it so much easier to maneuver getting in and out of the hospital bed to the wheelchair and especially after I got home.”
