"As you well know, women that are given a diagnosis of breast cancer can feel overwhelmed. A few of my suggestions to these women are: obtain Dr. Susan Love's Breast Book and I tell them about the SOFTEE®. I believe that the SOFTEE® is a valuable and comforting product. It immediately addresses shape issues and is comforting when surgical sites are still tender. Thank you for creating the SOFTEE®."
--Beth Dayton, M.D., F.A.C.S., Surgeon
"In my job as coordinator of the Breast Cancer Outreach Program, I meet women every day that have been diagnosed with breast cancer. It has been a pleasure to show them the SOFTEE® as a prosthetic option. If I had known about the SOFTEE®, I would have appreciated wearing one years ago when I had bilateral mastectomies."
--Christine Mulder, B.C.O.P. Coordinator, Breast Specialty Center
"A woman who undergoes a mastectomy has many issues to deal with emotionally, as well as physically. The biggest concern is in learning to cope with an altered body image. The SOFTEE® garment has helped so many of my patients adjust to that very traumatic loss. Not only does it provide warmth and comfort for patients at all stages of breast surgery, but it sustains them through the multiple stages of reconstruction with the breast forms that can be added or removed to achieve the balance so necessary for a healthy self image."
--Dean P. Kane, M.D., F.A.C.S., Plastic Surgery
"I'd like to take this opportunity to tell you "Thank You" for the SOFTEE® on behalf of my breast surgery patients. The SOFTEE® TWO is a very useful and comforting product for immediately following surgery. The SOFTEE® seems to make the time between surgery and recovery emotionally easier. My staff, my patients, and I agree that the SOFTEE® products are wonderful."
--Dr. Stephen L. Rubin, M.D., P.C., Breast Care Coordinator, Surgeon
"As the pre-admission Coordinator at Community Hospital, I have the unique opportunity and privilege to counsel our patients pre-operatively. Dr. Hoover, a general surgeon, called my attention to your wonderful product. It is with great pleasure and pride that I may now report our Hospital Volunteers have agreed to purchase a SOFTEE® for each of our mastectomy patients. Thank you [Linda], for your sincere efforts to share your first-hand knowledge and empathy with women surviving cancer. You are providing an immeasurable gift of hope!"
--Gina Caparella, R.N., Pre-Admission Coordinator, Community Hospital
"A number of my patients have utilized the SOFTEE® garment after mastectomy. I have been impressed that it is not only comfortable, but it can be used promptly right after mastectomy adding to the patient's feeling of well being and comfort."
--Harold R. Hoover, M.D., General Surgery
"We have been so pleased with the patient response to the SOFTEE®. As you know, our cancer coordinating committee purchased the SOFTEE® to give without charge to our patients who have had breast surgery at [the] Medical Center. We are pleased to work with you in this outstanding service to women."
--Jan Johnson, Cancer Coordinating Committee, Medical Center
"The SOFTEE® has made the early postoperative care of my mastectomy patients much easier. I think it is a marvelous product."
--Paul Smith, M.D., Surgeon General/Peripheral Vascular Surgery
"Thank you for all your help these past years. Our patients love their SOFTEE®".
--Rosemary Maresca, R.N., Surgery Nurse Specialist, Medical Foundation
"Before being able to offer the SOFTEE® to mastectomy patients I needed approval from every surgeon. Not one surgeon I approached had any reservation about offering the SOFTEE® to appropriate patients. The women's reactions to the SOFTEE® are usually one of relief. Relief that there is something for them to wear right after surgery. It has been rewarding to be able to have something to offer these women."
--Sue Cook, RN, OCN Coordinator, Breast Cancer Support Services
