I wanted to take this time to send our customers and supporters a huge thank you and to give you an update on what I’ve been up to since COVID-19 has hit our community. We’re all living with our own challenges right now, and the only way through this mountain is up and over together.
I’m very thankful to those of you who #lovelocal and have made telephone and email orders for our wonderful products at My Left Breast.
We recently released the Amoena spring and summer collection, along with daily deals, which you can check out over the next little while on our Facebook and Instagram pages and e-blasts. Many of our distributors are shipping directly which is great news. If you have insurance, now is a great time to do your annual bra shopping.
I’m currently working on an e-commerce section on myleftbreast.ca and will certainly let you know when it’s up and running. In the meantime, keep calling and emailing your orders.
While Marlene and Peggy are having some downtime at home, I’ll remain at the shop from Monday to Friday, 11:30 am to 4:30 pm (shop is closed to the public). We want to continue to serve our customers and are adapting our current ways of doing business to help you during this time.
If you need a medical compression garment, prosthesis, headwear, a wig or a gift certificate, you can receive it in a few ways as we follow social distancing practices:
- Local doorstep delivery
- Doorstep pick-up at the shop
Since March 16th, I’ve delivered many complimentary post-surgery camisoles for women who have had breast cancer surgeries.
My Left Breast and Birdies 4 Breast Cancer Care have also partnered to provide a complimentary post-surgery camisole or complimentary bra to those going through a lumpectomy or mastectomy.
Our beloved Denise MacDonald and her family organized the first Birdies 4 Breast Cancer Golf Tournament. Funds raised help women who are in financial need and going through breast cancer treatment get access to items they need during their breast cancer journey. Denise’s giving heart keeps on giving during this pandemic. Thank you, Denise!
I’m excited to share that several of our customers created a sewing group called Healing Hearts: You Are Not Alone. They provide soft heart-shaped pillows for comfort for women who are healing from breast surgery. We have delivered and shipped these soft pillows which are always met with grateful hearts.
Before I sign off, there are numerous people I want to personally thank: Peterborough Chamber of Commerce and DBIA for offering accurate information and support to help local businesses, our landlord Todd Smith of AON Inc., BMO, our courier drivers, the medical community, post office workers, grocery store workers, our suppliers, my dynamic duo, Marlene and Peggy, and other partners who help keep My Left Breast moving forward. I’m very grateful for you all.
We are here for you. Thank you for being there for My Left Breast.
Much love to you all,
