Friends Of The Feather

Two friends talking about mastectomy recovery
Welcome to Friends of the Feather!
This is a special space that allows for women who are embarking on their mastectomy recovery journeys to read about and learn from the women who have come before them.
Our Friends of the Feather share their recovery experiences and offer perspectives and thoughts to not only provide insight for those who need it, but to also share and reflect their own journeys. In this space you will dive in to the experiences of former patients, family members, care takers, and clinical staff on profile style interviews that foster a sense of understanding and belonging to this larger community.  
If you want to participate in our Friends of the Feather community please sign up below. We would LOVE to share your journey!
