    I am a 22 year breast can­cer sur­vivor. I devel­oped Lym­phedema after 18 years. Since I had a mas­tec­tomy and chemo, I wanted to do some­thing to help other women who have gone through the same things as I did. So I became a Cer­ti­fied Mas­tec­tomy Fit­ter with BOC and I fit­ted other ladies for about 18 years. I have only recently given it up because I can­not face the prob­lems that the gov­ern­ment have caused with other O and P providers. I would still like to find a way to help oth­ers so I am keep­ing my BOC cer­ti­fi­ca­tion cur­rent in hopes that I will find a way to use it. I really like to see ladies “light up” when they see that they can look and feel like before surgery. I am always shocked when I am told by a lady that she had surgery 2 years or more ago and had never been fit­ted. The gov­ern­ment is push­ing small fit­ters out of busi­ness. Now, to my knowl­edge, there is only one fit­ter in my city and they do not take assign­ment. I always believed that to prop­erly serve these ladies that a busi­ness should “take assign­ment” because most do not have the money to pay “up-front.” Per­haps this is a mis­sion to be taken up this organization.
