Give the Gift of Post-Surgery Comfort with the Brobe Ultimate Surgery Recovery Gift Bundle #breastcancer #cosmeticsurgery

This year has been filled with the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. What began as the best moment of our lives as we welcomed our newborn baby has shifted to a breast cancer diagnosis and anxiety-filled days. One in five women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Most of us can name friends, loved ones, and coworkers who have gone through it. Despite all of the advancements in the treatment of breast cancer, hearing the news doesn't get any easier. Upon receiving my diagnosis, I felt overwhelmed with all of the terminology I had to learn, the constant statistics being rattled off, and all the decisions that needed to be made so quickly. 

Many of my friends and family have found wonderful ways to offer support. The daily check-ins, thoughtful gifts, and hours and hours of help taking care of our newborn have been appreciated beyond measure. In my many late-nights of scouring of the internet and reading all I can find about my particular situation, I came across a product that everyone going through this awful process should have. It's called the Brobe Ultimate Surgery Recovery Gift Bundle and it's ideal for getting around more easily, managing the pain that comes with every bump and rumble endured during car rides to and from follow-up appointments, and just feeling a little more dignity during hospital appointments and home visits with family and friends. The items in this kit help to manage the drains, reduce pain, and feel calm, secure, and in control as you recover. While none of this process is easy, having the right post-surgery comfort items can make a world of difference. In sharing about it, I hope that it helps others manage their care better, too.

Thinking of making the switch? In this post, we've provided five benefits to using mason jar storage, some information on the Ball® Collection Elite® Regular Mouth 32 oz. Glass Mason Jars and 4 oz. Mini Storage Jars we use, and common bulk items to look for.
