Pink Pockets Program

Pink Pockets Distribution Program

Supporting Comfort and Recovery for Mastectomy Patients

Pink Ribbon Society offers our Pink Pockets program to several local hospitals. When a breast cancer patient leaves the hospital following a mastectomy, she is sent home with surgical drains to catch the fluid from the surgical site. The drains may I for as many a 10 days. Pink Pockets is an adhesive pocket that is secured to the inside of a patient’s blouse or shirt to hold the drain bottles in place so they do not interfere with normal activities. If you are scheduled for breast surgery, check with your hospital’s nurse navigator to see if they have Pink Pockets in their department. If not, have them give us a call and we will deliver a supply to them.
