The most basic and powerful way to connect
to another person is to listen. Just listen.
Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other
is our attention.

If you have been diagnosed with breast cancer (whether you have already begun treatment or not), chances are you may now be concerned with finding out where you can find a variety of products and services.
In this section we list information about where to find the following: breast prostheses and forms, trained and in-home fitters, post-mastectomy bras, swimwear and clothing, wigs, wig stylists, hats, turbans and lymphedema products. We also note when discounts are available or insurance filed.
If you do not find resources listed in your county, check our listings for “Regional and Statewide Suppliers” as well as those for “Near North Carolina” and “Mail or Internet Resources.” You can also try your local Yellow Pages listings.
Please be aware that information changes continually. Some suppliers may move locations, new ones may open, and others may close their businesses. We have made every effort to be sure that the resources we have provided are accurate. We hope this information helps you better answer the question, “Where do I find it?”
Note: Most suppliers listed carry or can order breast prostheses in light and dark skin tones as well as wigs for African American women. We suggest that you call the suppliers to verify that they can meet your needs.
