Jacki® provides post surgery relief for Cancer patients who have undergone double mastectomy or a bilateral mastectomy. Mastectomy recovery is challenging, Jacki® offers independence, warmth, and dignity to help a patient feel comfortable. It is also a great alternative to conventional hospital gowns (johnny hospital gowns) that are revealing and uncomfortable to wear.
Jacki's® features can help Cancer patients who have gone through any of the five different types of mastectomy: "simple" or "total" mastectomy, modified radical mastectomy, radical mastectomy, partial mastectomy, and subcutaneous (nipple-sparing) mastectomy.
How is Jacki® better than the traditional hospital gown?
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, while 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. Do you know anyone who is undergoing recovery after mastectomy? Jacki® is a recovery product for cancer patients that can prove to be extremely helpful. This mastectomy wear can also be a great gift idea for women with cancer.
Are you looking for post-operative recovery shirts?
You no longer need to use safety pins to hold your hospital gown together. Jacki® is breast cancer clothing that provides the privacy and coverage you need. Surgery recovery clothing should be comfortable and hassle free.
Make Jacki® a part of the cancer care package or care plan to give your loved ones a solution for the challenges they are facing. If you are looking for gifts for cancer patients, getting a Jacki® will help make their life easier.
Jacki® is beneficial for other cancer patients who are looking for cancer clothing for their recovery process. This mastectomy recovery shirt has easy access points so nurses can do their daily tasks without making the patient go through difficult and painful movements. It has been said to be an essential recovery garment, worn 24/7.

“Thank you for making it possible for me to receive a 'Jacki®' jacket to wear after surgery for a double mastectomy I recently. The jacket was the only thing I was able to wear for the first 30 days post-op, & having it made dressing & draining SO MUCH EASIER. I dont know what I would have done without it.”
“In the midst of this uncertain time for me the quiet support from so many sides is amazing and appreciated.”
“The Jacki® was a huge help. I had 4 drains and it would have been difficult to dress and travel two hours without the Jacki®. It is wonderful to have groups like yours to do the good work you are doing.
“Thank you for providing this extra at a time when things can be very confusing and overwhelming.”
“I left the hospital with 5 drains. Having your jacket with the ability to put those drains in the pockets was an absolute gift. I cannot tell you how impressed everyone was with this jacket – including my doctors. I only wish everyone who has to undergo this type of surgery could benefit from it.”

“Each and every patient who used this product found it to be a useful and comforting item when comfort is otherwise at a minimum. The long hours spent waiting in drafty rooms wearing only a thin hospital johnny can make patients feel even worse than they already do. It robs them of their dignity…
