- Traditional Johnny gowns are uncomfortable and revealing. As a Cancer patient, Cathy McGrath designed an alternative to traditional hospital gowns, also known as johnny gowns, to have independence, a better quality of life, best manage post-surgical drains, while also helping her children cope with her own mastectomy. No one wants to feel like a patient, you want to feel and look normal every day while overcoming daily struggles associated with surgery recovery.
- How can The Jacki help during post-operative recovery period?

Recovery Wear clothing also helps the caregiver clean the incisions and wounds without having to undress the patient every time.
