October is a month associated not only with fall, turning leaves, and Halloween, but with breast cancer awareness. "Breast cancer awareness" has become an ubiquitous phrase to keep health at the forefront of our minds, educate ourselves of the latest in research, as well as to bring to light the struggles of those affected by breast cancer.
Two years ago, Elizabeth Chabner Thompson, MD, MPH, a radiation oncologist, founded BFFL Co, a company that produces a line of products designed to help patients recover from surgeries and treatments. Thompson, not only as an oncologist, but as someone who personally underwent prophylactic double mastectomy and breast reconstruction, dedicated herself to developing products that would truly improve the quality of a patient's experience. She knew there were more helpful things loved ones could provide than chocolate or flowers.
BFFL Co, (Best Friends for Life), provides expertly curated collections of recovery products and services. The Limited Edition Breast BFFLBag was developed along with KIND Healthy Snacks as a collection of items that nourish, entertain, and heal. With items like an axillapilla comfort pillow, Bio-Oil scar treatment, a box of KIND bars, fuzzy slipper-socks, a magazine, and cards, recipients of the Breast BFFLBag will surely feel pampered.
The Limited Edition Breast BFFLBag also contains a pack of necessities such as lip balm, nail clippers, ear plugs, a hair brush, a pad of paper, pen, and blank note cards. Basically, anything someone could possibly use while in recovery is in this bag, including a care pack of gauze, alcohol, bandages, and a file to store drain charts.
What's also great about the Limited Edition Breast BFFLBag is that is can be used for so many things after recovery. It's a hot pink quilted tote that's beautifully designed with zip interior pockets, making it the perfect overnight tote, gym bag, or even an everyday handbag for the autumn and winter. Its quilted design is reminiscent of a winter puffer coat, making it the perfect winter accessory. The included cases that store things like playing cards and lip balm can later be used as cosmetic cases.
Best of all, with each purchase of the Limited Edition Breast BFFLBag, BFFL Co and Kind Healthy Snacks will donate 20% of sales to Friends Fighting Breast Cancer. The Limited Edition Breast BFFLBag can be purchased at bfflco.com for $100-- the same price as a bouquet of flowers. But unlike flowers, the BFFLBag is a truly valuable way to show someone you love and care, while also helping to donate to a great cause.
