Shop Well with You
Shop Well with You (SWY) is the only national not-for-profit organization that helps women surviving all types of cancer improve their body-image and quality of life by using clothing as a means towards wellness. Through education, outreach and personalized services, Shop Well with You focuses on the woman, not the cancer, to provide support and promote survivorship.
SWY offers several programs:
·Information Resource Program: Through the website, www.shopwellwithyou.org, and printed materials women can learn about clothing styles and brands as well as additional body-image resources to accommodate cancer treatments and related side-effects.
·One-on-One Service: Women requesting personalized assistance for their body-image related needs will receive a uniquely tailored packet of information with general tips, pictures, prices and where to locate suggested garments.
·Fashion Your Own Sense of Self Outreach: Interactive seminars held at hospitals and support organizations educate participants on how to use clothing and accessories to boost their confidence during and after cancer treatments. (currently New York - specific)
All programs and materials are provided free of charge.
