“Here is my wish-list for my friends, to bring them contentment before the day ends – A pinch of faith and a cupful of hope, a handful of courage to help them cope, an abundance of health and a heart full of love, all brought down to them from their Angels above” ~ Mary Jac
AMOENA POCKETED SWIMWEAR: Amoena pocketed swimwear gives you the confidence to show off your figure again – whether on the beach or in the pool. Chic, fashionable designs combine with clever tailoring and high-tech fabrics in the latest colors, while bilateral pockets hold your breast forms securely in place. The stunning Amoena collection includes something for everyone.
While The Brobe features the built in bra, the Recovery Brobe features much more. The built-in pockets for the post-op drains inside the robe provide women with one of the first ever functional garments for after a lumpectomy or mastectomy. The built-in bra that fastens with Velcro also contains pockets shaped specifically for a prosthetic breast and/or ice packs. To top it off, the luxurious fabric serves as a reminder of beauty and femininity during such a difficult time.

June is National Cancer Survivor Month.
The associated Awareness Ribbon color is Lavender

The day is meant to demonstrate that life after a cancer diagnosis can be a reality. In the United States alone there are over 11 million cancer survivors.
THE SHOWER SHIRT™-
A post-surgical, water resistant garment designed to protect Mastectomy drains and Hemodialysis Catheters (for ESRD patients) from water while showering. The use of the Shower Shirt is to reduce the risk of infection. Mastectomy drains and Hemodialysis Catheters (for ESRD patients) act as portals for bacteria to enter wound sites, increasing the risk of post-surgical infections. Physicians routinely instruct patients NOT TO shower without protection. The ability to bathe appropriately can reduce stress and anxiety for patients, while also reducing the risk of infection. The Shower Shirt can be used for showering after a mastectomy or showering with dialysis catheters. In addition to Mastectomy and Hemodialysis patients, The SHOWER SHIRT™ is used by patients with the following conditions:
“Where There is Love, There is Life” Bracelet’s just came in. Available in several colors.

A new retail business located in Los Ranchos de Albuquerque will specialize in products for people who are undergoing cancer treatments.
Angel Wellness Boutique is scheduled to open next week in a 900-square-foot space at 8318 4th Street NW near Paseo del Norte.
Owner Sylvia Bencomo said the store will offer an extensive line of wigs, turbans, hairpieces, breast forms, mastectomy bras and skin care products. The boutique will feature brands such as Amoena — one of the largest manufacturers of breast forms — Lindi, a skin care company specializing in the needs of cancer patients, and Juzo arm sleeves and gloves for women who are at risk of developing lymphedema after radiation or chemotherapy.
Bencomo said she is a breast cancer survivor and her eldest daughter has also gone through cancer treatments.
“I decided I wanted to devote myself to helping women find their confidence and self-esteem while going through cancer treatment,” Bencomo said.
Bencomo said she is an Air Force veteran and former government worker. This is the first time she has owned and operated a business.
Angel Wellness Boutique will hold a soft opening Aug. 6 and a grand opening Aug. 10. For more information, contact Bencomo via email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (505) 933-1069.
