Homemade breasts prosthetics

Shared by Ana Duarte on 2016-01-06 16:06

About the solution

The cancer survivor created these prosthetics when she learned that the Canadian Cancer Society was out of silicone prosthetics for women who had undergone mastectomies.

With the help of her two sisters, Racine has been making breast prosthetics of her own design.
"I felt I needed to give back," said Racine. "I offered my services because I've been a seamstress for 41 years."
The prosthetics are made out of old T-shirts. The result: a prosthetic that is lighter, more comfortable, more practical and less expensive than silicone.
