Just the word breast cancer can bring about intense emotions, fear, anger and questioning, why me. In March of 2012, I was diagnosed with breast cancer, an unwelcome dragon that had to be slayed. I began my search for a dragon slayer and found two knights in shinning armor who forever will be my heroes, the awesome Dr. D and the amazing Dr. Arian Mowlavi. Cancer has been in my family so I opted for a bilateral mastectomy. I was very fortunate the cancer did not invade any lymph nodes and remained contained. After a 6 hour surgery and immediate reconstruction, the doctors were triumphant and the nasty dragon was slain. I emerged victorious thanks to this awesome duo. After my surgery I was bound with bandages, one of which was a breast band. If it

weren't enough dealing with the pain and discomfort of the surgery, I had to wear this painfully uncomfortable band. After four weeks the breast band was removed, what a relief. Once I had completely healed and recovered I had spoken with several other individuals who had reconstructive an augmentation surgery and they all agreed, their recovery would have been so much easier if the breast band did not hurt as much as it did. I thought, there has to be a better way. After several months of research and development we were successful in developing the "Mermaid" breast compression band that was not only very comfortable but was contoured to fit your body. I am happy to say that the Mermaid is now available for anyone to buy. If you are in need of a comfortable breast compression band, get the Mermaid, there is nothing else like it.
