The immediate response from the wonderful Ladies at BFFL Co to my questions are PRICELESS and makes me feel so special! I am scheduled for my prophylactic bilateral mastectomy in April and already have the wonderful, bright, cheerful mastectomy bag. My doctor said I could you the Elizabeth surgical bra immediately after surgery instead of the velcro lined ones they provide! I am so grateful for this Company and tell everyone I meet about how wonderful they are. Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!
I found BFFL Co through the FORCE (Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered) website and several other blogs relating to “Previvor” options and experiences due to BRCA mutations. These are awesome gift bags so I don’t have to travel all over town gathering these items.
I wanted to pass along a note of thanks for your BFFLBag®! A friend, who is 37 weeks, received a Mommy/Delivery BFFLBag® and she is over the moon about it. She and her husband told me that it is one of the best gifts they received. They were very grateful for both a “ready for going to the hospital” bag, as well as all the thoughtful items inside–they said they actually received a bit of an education through some items, as they hadn’t anticipated needing them. Because of this, she now feels like she is really prepared to not only go to the hospital, but have a smooth recovery, and this has really given her peace of mind in these final weeks. She asked me to pass along a fan note to you :-).
What a wonder bag of gifts – I can’t think of a thing that was missed. Record keeping page, AxillaPilla, All kinds of necessary information, Three cosmetic type bags filled with things for all types of personal needs, a DVD, lotions, anti-aging creams, notes, slipper socks – very soft, bandages, even candy & a nut bar, There is so much stuff in this one bag, I will find something new every day. They didn’t miss a thing. This is the absolutely the best gift I have ever seen for an operation! Thank You so much!
I sent your double mastectomy gift to my sister-in-law. She received it yesterday and told me she was crying all night (“in a good way”) because a friend of hers had given her a list of things she would need for her surgery, and practically every single item on the list was in the BFFLBag. She said she felt relieved that everything was in one place. No one wants to go through this and we are praying that this will be as quick and painless as possible as she is only 40 years old. One feels so helpless and your company provided comfort and necessity in time of uncertainty. THANK YOU!
Yesterday I interviewed a 55 year old breast cancer survivor. She was a patient of Dr. Ashikari (Dobbs Ferry Hospital). She told us about her experience from beginning to end and it was absolutely incredible seeing her strength. We asked her what had helped her most along her journey and she spoke of the nurses, support from her family and community and then she said ‘and the BFFLBag I got as I was leaving the hospital. It was the most beautiful duffel bag with so many things that helped me at home after my surgeries. Was just such a nice way for me to have a bit of help once the nurses were no longer with me.’ —
I wear my bra even though I finished radiation months ago. I love it. —
My nipples were peeling and so sensitive. The lining on the bra was perfect and the cotton does not rub. It even washed well and got softer. Thank you. —
My breasts were so heavy and sore. Now I feel supported. —
The bra is so comfortable, I even sleep in it. —
I received a Mommy/Delivery BFFLBag® this week and it is fabulous! I’m so grateful for such a thoughtful and helpful gift, it makes the thought of labour less daunting to know I will have such lovely things to take in with me! What a fabulous company BFFL is! —
The BFFL Delivery Bag was such a treat! —
It’s a compact bag that includes everything you could possibly need for your hospital stay when giving birth. And put together with such thought and care. As if having a baby doesn’t require enough forward planning and organization – it was nice to be able to leave `the hospital bag’ to someone else!
It comes with a complete set of mini toiletries (all the necessities as well the niceties), flip flop shoes, ice pack, bandages, multi- functional drink bottle, a cute pillow (great for breast feeding and to keep baby upright afterwards), playing cards, gift cards, sweets, section for important documents and so much more.
It’s the perfect baby shower present (unique and so helpful!), or gift from mother to daughter.
I am recommending it to all my girlfriends.
Thank you BFFL!
While I’m just coming up on 30 weeks pregnant, I am already using my Mommy/Delivery BFFLBbag®. I was surprised at how many things were already in there, yet there is still room for me to add in extras like diapers, a towel, robe, and a few snacks. The first thing I used out of the bag is the axillapilla® for supporting my belly while I sleep. I tuck it under my belly and it helps relieve some of the pressure and stretching. I’ve also used it between my knees to keep my hips aligned – sometimes I prefer the small axilla pillow over my larger maternity pillows. Some of the other things in the bag that I think I will find useful during and after labor is the headband (planning on a water birth so that will be nice to have to keep my hair back and dry) and the fuzzy socks for keeping my feet warm when I get out of the tub. The toiletries bag is also nice – most of the essentials are in there so I don’t have to think about adding much! I am looking forward to the “big day” and I know my BFFLBag® will be —
right there with me. I love that the stripes on the bag are gender-neutral and I can see myself using it for trips to the beach with our little one! Thank you BFFL Co. for making such a useful product that is filled with thoughtful, appropriate gifts for the mom-to-be.
Now I don’t have to worry about packing what I need, it is all here!
Wow – cannot thank you enough for the miracle bag of hospital goodies! I was so dreading that trip to cvs to pickup last minute necessary/sanitary items…I remember looking at my basket during checkout right before K was born and thinking “that’s a whole lot of pain in there.” Your gift has actually made it simple and, dare I say, easy?!? I love it – thank you so so much for such a thoughtful gesture!
Such a lovely afternoon today – I am still glowing from all the love and support of such beautiful friends.
