As certified mastectomy fitters for more than 18 years, the program founders encountered countless survivors who could not afford their mastectomy needs. The founders began collecting “gently used” mastectomy items and passing the needed items on to survivors in need. Wanting to do the very best for the survivors, the founders formed the “Because She’s A Lady” Foundation.
Our “Ladies In Training” program started after program founders were asked to provide supportive sports bras for an inner city high school tennis team. Appreciating the need for quality support garments for young girls engaged in sports activities, the founders designed the “Ladies In Training” program. The mission of Because She’s A Lady, Inc. is to address the special needs of breast cancer survivors others who may need extended mammary support and are under-insured or cannot otherwise afford such needs.
