BALTIMORE, Md. - Let’s go in the back and I’m gonna help you."
Help is exactly what breast cancer survivors like Judy Bottorf are looking for when they turn to Bare Necessities. In addition to fancy bras and lingerie, Lynn Fram and her sister also sell prosthetic breasts and specially made bras for survivors.
You come in and you’re not feeling your best and some of these women are going through chemo and radiation, and they just want to get back to their normal lives. They want to get back to their normal lives. They want to get back to work. They want to get back to looking good."
Judy is living proof.....she was diagnosed six years ago.
You need a place that will help you find what you’re looking because you don't know what you're looking for.
Thrilled to be past the critical five year survival mark.....Judy knows in addition to a good bra....you'll need a listening ear...she works with the program Survivors Offering Support on the Eastern Shore.
I have a mentee right now and she lives in a nearby town and we're not in the same town but I'm on the phone to her often and she calls me if she wants to talk. As she goes through each stage of the treatment process, I can tell her what to expect.
It's a battle that’s near and dear to Lynn and her family. Her mother Judy lost her battle with breast cancer six-and-a-half-years ago. Fighting the disease with Susan G. Komen is something she's done for more than 20 years.
We'd love to be able to have a cure in our lifetime.
Judy also hopes for a cure one day soon...until then she's doing what she can to help others...and celebrating her personal victories along the way.
I saw it in a shop and I saw this I fought like a girl and won and I said this is the shirt for me.
