Wearing Amoena Contact breast forms: My story
A 20-year breast cancer survivor and busy mom tells why she loves Amoena Contact
Busy, busy, busy, How many of us are busy?? I am a mother of three sons, who are 9, 13 and 15. Yes, two teenagers – joyous! They play volleyball, basketball, tennis and soccer; they ski, sled, swim, mountain bike and hike. They also play the tuba and percussion. We have a 75-lb dog who is very energetic. That is a lot of busy, busy. Did I mention that I work full-time? I love my work — but that also makes my life busy, busy, busy.
I am a 20-year breast cancer survivor and I wear a breast form. Do I have time to worry about my breast form in my everyday activities? Absolutely not, I don’t have time to think about it. I LOVE my form. My morning routine probably looks a lot like many of yours. I am up at 6:00 a.m., breakfast with my boys, shower, attach my form and dress and by 7:00 a.m. my computer is on and I’m checking work issues and what is going on. Then it’s carpool to junior high at 7:20 a.m. When I return, my 9-year-old is up and ready for breakfast; thankfully my husband takes him to school and walks the dog! At 8:00 a.m. my work day begins, and I have appointments with customers, promotions and meetings, flying all over the West Coast and even sometimes other places – any variety of things to do! At 5:30 p.m. I run on the track for 2-3 miles with my boys, and sometimes the dog comes too! Six-thirty is dinner with my family and family time, then by 9:30 p.m. I am powering down, making a last check of email and tying up loose ends. Finally at 10:30 p.m., I take off my breast form and wash it thoroughly. It has been through the wringer all day, every day!
When I bike, hike, ski, swim, carpool, run, play tennis, chase around with my sons, walk my dog, go through airport security, run through airports, sit in meetings and go about my life, I do not want to think about my breast form. Is it moving around? Is it popping out of the top of my bra? When I lean over, can anyone see that I am wearing a breast form? Nevermind that I don’t want to feel the weight pulling away from me as I move around. My form stays attached all day long, with all my moving around and with my perspiring as I run, exercise, etc. It never moves, never shifts; I never feel the weight. I just don’t feel it and forget I am wearing a breast form.
Phew, I am tired just writing how busy life can be! I wear a Contact breast form because it allows me the freedom to be as active as I am, it allows me to be busy, busy, busy, it allows me to be me. Would I wear anything else? Are you joking me? Why would I want to wear anything but an Amoena Contact form, it is the best breast form available and as busy as I am, I deserve the best. Don’t you?
