The Paradise Pillow

Paradise Pillow to be used by women recovering from Breast Cancer surgery

The Paradise Pillow has been especially designed and shaped to relieve pressure on the under arm and breast region for women following breast cancer surgery. It is moon shaped to fit snugly under the arm and has ribbon ties to make the size adjustable and to keep it in place.

Each Paradise Pillow is made from a satin material to eliminate friction and can be produced in a variety of colours. They are filled with the softest of stuffing to reduce pressure on the wound.

 

The Paradise Pillow can be used in a variety of situations:

  • Tuck under your arm for support when sleeping or when sitting in your chair
  • To protect you from car seat belt pressure
  • To wear under your jacket or top when out shopping or out doing any other activity

 

The Paradise Pillow story began in 2007 when Linda Simcox, a proud Australian originally from Sydney, who has been living happily in Wales since 1973, was diagnosed with breast cancer. Following successful surgery Linda received a pillow to use from her sister Mary back in Sydney, in the hope of keeping her comfortable during her recovery

 “I was so impressed with the pillow that I made a dozen of them and gave them to the breast care nurses at the hospital to give to other ladies to see what feedback they got” said Linda. “The feedback was all very positive with the patients asking me if I would make them so they could buy them”

Things gathered pace when the Mail on Sunday featured Linda in the You magazine.  It was the start of a crazy time resulting in a number of hospitals across the country ordering them regularly for their post op patients

Linda says “It would be wonderful to reach out and help more ladies” as they recover from breast cancer surgery
