Sewers Required For Mastectomy Drain Bag Project

Mastectomy drain bag

Our Skipton centre have been asked by Airedale Hospital to help make Mastectomy Drain Bags for their Breast Surgery patients.

The drain bags are worn over the shoulder to carry surgical drains following a mastectomy. The bags can be worn under clothes meaning patients can still go out without carrying uncomfortable drains.

We are asking for our local community to help Cancer Support Yorkshire with the making of the bags.

We can provide material and patterns from the Centre in Skipton, please call in to 45a Otley Street, Skipton or down load the pattern and information here How to make a lined and reversible Mastectomy Drain Bag

Any support with this project will be greatly appreciated-Thank you
