Knitted Knockers @ South Sacramento Cancer Center

Knitted Knockers are special handmade breast prosthesis for women who have undergone mastectomies or other procedures to the breast.

Traditional breast prosthetics can be expensive, heavy, and uncomfortable. As a rule, they cannot be worn for several weeks after surgery.

Knitted Knockers, on the other hand, are soft, light-weight, and comfortable. The hypoallergenic-cotton inserts can be worn immediately post-surgery. When placed in your regular bras, they take the shape and look of a real breast. For those going through reconstruction, Knitted Knockers can easily be adjusted to fill the gap for breasts that are uneven by removing some of the stuffing.

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. Theodore Roosevelt
