I've had a mastectomy and reconstruction and I needed a bra that was soft and supportive...my surgeon recommended the Theya Healthcare Peony Bra and it is so comfortable...it soothes me. I'm delighted with it, I've just ordered a second one in black! - Susan May
The front fastening bras Zip or Hook & Eye are great, soft, comfortable, easy to put on as after my operations I find it very hard to do the fastening at the back, very hard even after a few years, the straps are great comfortable and very good shape, great colour. They look just like a sports bra. - Teeny Dempsey
I just got mine Monday and they really are good. It is the first relief I have gotten since having my surgery in February. I'm now on chemo and my skin is so sore I couldn't let any sort of bra near me. I will certainly be ordering another one. - Anne Donnan
I bought these bras after they were recommended by my Macmillan nurse...Theya Healthcare's bamboo bras were a godsend!... I only wish I had found them sooner. I cannot recommend these enough for those of us who have been through surgery, they are worth every penny! - Tina Spicer
I just wanted to say a huge well done in making this bra. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in September 2015 and required a double mastectomy. Finding the right bra was a big chore and I ended up wearing a nursing bra post op. I had surgery 2 weeks ago to replace a ruptured implant. The nurse mentioned your product and I bought the Peony bra. I can honestly say the bra is perfect. A lot of thought has gone into this garment and I think probably the best on the market for ladies in my position. - Debra Rice
I was dreading putting any bra on the day after my operation, but the Theya Healthcare bra is so soft and comfortable it doesn't feel like it's squashing anything at all. Amazingly it gives support without feeling that you are actually wearing a bra; it is as comfortable as it could possibly be considering. I am so thankful I have been able to wear one of the Theya Healthcare bras the last three weeks and felt at ease after my operation. - Sarah Evans
Exercise can bring incredible benefits post breast cancer treatment. In the aftermath of surgery it can help you get your strength and mobility back so you can get back to doing all the things you did before your treatment. And in the longer term, a combination of fitness and strength training will not only help you feel better, but can also help reduce the risk of the cancer coming back and lower your risk of heart attack, stroke and diabetes.
In the Spring of 2004, my mother began complaining of a pain in her hip. I suggested she see a physio. Ten years earlier she had had breast cancer. It didn’t occur to me for a moment that the cancer had come back. By the time we found out that it was secondary (or metastatic) breast cancer, the disease had spread throughout her body. She died in the Spring of 2005.
I don’t talk about it much, and never publicly. But a woman called Jo Taylor made me think twice.
