About the solution
Sheila was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009. Two weeks later, she had surgery to remove a lump and lymph nodes, leaving her with 2 wounds, close together, under the arm.
“As a result of this, it was painful and uncomfortable at all times, being unable to sleep, too painful to lie on the wounded side and also painful to lie on the opposite side due to the weight of the breast pulling against the wounds.
There was a constant feeling of always wanting to protect the wounded side, not wanting to travel in the car for fear of sudden stops, and dreading going into crowds, shopping or socialising in case of being knocked or bumped into.
I searched for products to help alleviate the problem, to no avail”, she explained.
And that’s how TenderCrush was created.
