Breast Prostheses & Bras

Breast Prostheses & Bras

The M Store is excited to announce its new partnership with CANSA to extend the services offered at CANSA Care Centres, by including the fitting of breast prostheses, supply of mastectomy reconstruction & lumpectomy bras, and supply of garments to help manage lymphoedema.

The new partnership will mean that The M Store will provide its professional fitting services and full range of breast prostheses, bras, swimwear and lymphoedema garments at CANSA Care Centres nationally, to further their mandate to support cancer Survivors. This partnership aims to provide greater access to correctly fitted breast prostheses, mastectomy bras and lymphoedema products, in order to restore femininity, confidence and comfort to women after a mastectomy, lumpectomy or breast reconstruction.

  • Medical aid patients: automatically qualify for a breast prosthesis and 2 mastectomy bras under their prosthesis benefit.
  • Cash paying patients: purchasing the standard package of a breast prosthesis and mastectomy bra will get a second bra free.

*T’s & C’s apply

Having a mastectomy is a traumatic experience, and we know how a breast cancer patient’s confidence can be restored when she is fitted with a prosthesis and bra that fit and work for a patient’s body type and shape. The M Store’s specialised service complimenting CANSA’s existing patient services are a perfect match.

Contact your local CANSA Care Centre for support.

Knitted Knockers

Knitted Knockers are hand knitted breast prosthetics for women who have undergone mastectomies, or similar breast procedures. They are softer and lighter than any other prosthesis, comfortable to wear and can be placed in any regular bra.

Kits cost R60 and are available from our CANSA Care Centres. The kits are given to ladies in need, free of charge, or if they are able to give a small donation, towards helping us buy more kits!

Volunteers, patients or other interested parties use the kit contents to knit the prosthesis and drop it off at their local CANSA Care Centre for distribution to hospitals and patients in need.
