Breast Prosthesis Project
A breast prosthesis is an artificial breast form that replaces the shape of all or part of the breast that has been removed. It fits in a bra cup with or without a bra pocket. Breast prostheses are moulded to resemble the natural shape of a woman’s breast, or part of a breast. The breast prosthesis is given according to the size of the breast.
“I am from Peliyagoda and 60 years old. My husband passed away 20 years ago. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in June 2018 and had to have surgery to remove my left breast. I have a son and a daughter. My daughter is 38 years old and has 3 children. My son who is 39 years has 4 children of his own and works in a tea factory – he looks after me. I came today to get a Breast Prosthesis.”
