Products

Post Mastectomy Surgical Camisoles
A post-mastectomy surgical camisole provides interior pockets to hold your post surgical drain bulbs and accommodate a temporary breast form, if needed.

Post Mastectomy Leisure Forms and Bra
Upon removal of your drains, you may choose to wear a post-mastectomy leisure bra. It is designed to offer mild support and there are interior pockets, which hold the light-weight post-mastectomy leisure form. Typically worn up to three months.

Silicone Breast Forms and Mastectomy Bras
A mastectomy bra is similar to a leisure bra but offers a supportive fit. It has an inner pocket that
holds the breast prosthesis in place. Inspirit Cancer Support Services carries a variety of silicone breast prosthesis styles, including: weighted, climate control, lightweight, attachable, leisure and swim forms.

Lumpectomy / Partial Breast Forms
Lumpectomy and partial forms come in many shapes and styles. This prosthesis is ideal for post-lumpectomy, post-reconstruction, and enhancement of under-developed breasts.

Custom Breast Prosthesis
Some advantages of a custom prosthesis:

  • They mirror the shape and size of the intact breast to provide symmetry.
  • They are made to your chest wall allowing the form to fit like a puzzle piece.
  • There is no need for a surgical mastectomy bra.
  • They are very lightweight.
  • Available in over 20 skin tone colors.

Massage
Inspirit also provides a free Swedish massage for Cancer Center patients receiving treatment at St. Joe's. The cancer coupon must be signed by the physician prior to the therapist providing the service.


Head Coverings and Wig Services
Attractive wigs, hats, turbans, and scarves are available at Inspirit. A certified cosmetologist provides free head shavings and certified wig fitters will provide a FREE 1 hour wig consultation and fitting. Your first hair cut is complementary after your course of treatment has been completed and hair growth has resumed. Learn more about our wig services.
