Although the Internet is brimming with information for the breast cancer community, there were still some topics about the aftermath of mastectomy that had not been covered.
Maywood, NJ (PRWEB) October 02, 2013
Bringing mastectomy empowerment to the forefront during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, BreastHealing.com has launched its new interactive and user-friendly educational hub, the trademarked Breast Healing Map™.
The wealth of education on the site was written by BreastHealing.com’s Founder and President Elizabeth Vivenzio, who had been a medical editor for more than 30 years prior to her 2009 mastectomy.
“Although the Internet is brimming with information for the breast cancer community, there were still some essential topics about the aftermath of mastectomy that were not covered,” said Mrs. Vivenzio. “It has become my mission to empower women during their breast healing and, specifically, encourage them to thrive after mastectomy.”
Breast Healing Map™ leads readers to topics relevant to those who are healing from surgery or going through breast reconstruction. It also addresses the needs of those choosing breast deconstruction (removal of implants) because of pain and of those who decide on no reconstruction.
The paths of the Breast Healing Map™ range from proactive preparation for mastectomy surgery and post-op self-care tips to the importance of breast rehabilitation for optimal shoulder, arm, and chest muscle healing.
Post-reconstruction issues encompass the decision-making process about nipple/areola reconstruction and areola pigmentation, commonly called nipple tattoos. For those who decide to go flat after mastectomy, there is advice about fashion styles that improve self-esteem.
The Breast Healing Map™ was designed by Jersey Girls Creative, a New Jersey-based company offering full custom-designed website solutions and services.
