Emily creates Mastectomy Pillow

Anne Ivory, Emily Tierney and Candy Molloy

Emily Tierney dropped in to the Centre last week.

Emily is in TY in Temple Carrig.

“Unfortunately, like many other children, cancer was a word I knew before I could even read. That’s why when we were told to think about our thesis I knew I wanted to do something involved with the chance to be able to help someone even if it was just something small. After a lot of research, I learned about mastectomy pillows. These were pillows that I knew I would have the skills to make that can be really beneficial for cancer patients. Mastectomy pillows are pillows that are designed to wrap around the patients chest and have wings that side under the armpits. This can make recovery more comfortable for many patients who have undergone a mastectomy surgery"
