The TAB team has been busy collecting donated bras which will be distributed at the annual Cancer de Mamas clinic held at LaPenita, Mexico. Cancer de Mamas is an event supported by the Jaltemba Foundation (http://jaltembafoundation.com) whereby local Mexican women who have had a mastectomy are provided with a new bra and prosthesis, and/or a wig. The clinicians provide the Mexican ladies with a proper-fitting and help choose the best prosthesis. The garment is sent to the seamstresses who alter the garments while the ladies are treated to lunch.
By the end of the appointment, each of the Mexican ladies is provided with a proper bra and prosthetic; and equally as important - restored hope and renewed dignity. TAB bras has been happy to be a welcomed participant by donating new bras and expertise to this great cause. We have pledged to return in the coming year to participate in the event planned for early February, 2011.
If you are interested in donating your "gently used" bras to this great cause, please contact any TAB bra distributor and we'll take care of the rest!
