On October 4th the Divas Changing Lives charity hosted “The Beautiful You” extravaganza in promotion of the Camisole Project. They had over 500 women attend the event and our committed to support
women in our local community. The Camisole Project was founded by Barb Daize, owner of BodyMed Boutique in Burlington, Ontario, in 2011. Having been touched in many ways by breast cancer Barb wanted to pay it forward and provide comfort and dignity to those women having breast cancer surgery.
After breast cancer surgery, post-surgical drainage tubes are used and can remain in place for days or weeks. Typically,patients use safety pins to ease the awkwardness of the equipment. Barb found two manufactures that have
cleverly inserted removable drain pockets to provide protection and comfort at such a critical time in a women’s recovery. The Camisole Project donates these camisoles to women having breast cancer surgery at hospitals in many areas of Ontario including Halton, Niagara, Mississauga and Toronto. They also recently shipped free camisoles outside of Ontario, to Alberta, British Columbia and Nova Scotia. Their hope now is to expand this project across all communities in Ontario and to continue to support women in need across Canada.
MarShield, a division of Mars Metal Company believes in supporting causes in our local community and has done so for 35 years. We were exited to donate to this wonderful cause knowing that we were making women in our community more comfortable during such a hard time. Being in the Medical industry ourselves we understand the importance of these charities and will continue our support efforts for many years to come.
