Post-Treatment

 

You’ve finished active treatment. Congratulations!  It's very real to face this part of your journey with mixed feelings. You are relieved, but still unsure about what the future holds and how to fully embrace your "new normal". Life and your body has changed and your emotional outlook is different now. Some say the transition into post-treatment is where the real work begins. Don't hesitate to speak to your medical team, to reach out for counseling or to reach out to us if you are seeking support.

 

Boutique Services

Wigs, Hats, Bras, Prosthetics and Apparel

Your treatment may include surgery, treatments, medications that will affect your physical appearance.  Let the To Life! boutique and fitting services assist you. We provide a private atmosphere for fittings in both our wig and mastectomy boutiques. Boutiques are located in Delmar, NY and Saratoga Springs, NY. Please click here for more information or call 518-439-5975 to schedule an appointment.

Additional Resources

Many women are surprised to find post-treatment is when some of the most difficult feelings arise. Well-meaning family, friends and colleagues celebrate that things are “back to normal" but your life has changed, your perspective has changed.

Here are links to services and resources To Life! has assembled.
