Comfort Pillows

Comfort pillows provide more than support.   A while back a friend told me of her breast cancer and upcoming chemo treatments. Not knowing what else to do I bought her the usual cards along with offers of sympathy and other platitudes. Then, I learned about a little pillow and the impact it can make on a person’s life. It is just a simple little crescent shaped pillow designed to fit in the under arm area.

After surgery, the breast and surrounding area may be very tender. Breast surgery and reconstruction changes weight distribution on the chest muscles. Through her year of treatment, my friend took her pillow everywhere – to the chemo center, on trips, and even to bed.  She told me years later that the little pillow not only gave her physical comfort and support but also the emotional comfort and support of knowing someone cared about her and her breast cancer journey.
