Softies are hand knitted prostheses for breast cancer survivors. Knitters love the way they start and find the pattern is quickly memorized. The shaping on the back is reminiscent of shaping the crown of a hat. The size of the Softies can be customized by adding or removing some of the fill through the opening in the back.

To donate Softies, contact your local Breast Care Center or medical centers that care for these women.

Thank you Arlene for your friendship and pictures.
