Supports make comfier rides for cancer patients

A LOCAL Tablelands woman has joined hands with All Women in Atherton to make special seatbelt supports for people suffering from the after-effects of cancer.

Tegan Crawford with Joanne Hohnberg of All Women in Atherton holding one of their new seatbelt supports.

Pushed by necessity, Tegan Crawford was searching for a way to make car rides more comfortable for cancer patients who had a mastectomy or hysterectomy. 

After weeks of searching with no luck, a friend suggested she approach All Woman in Atherton and the idea was brought to life. 

“I have had many loved ones touched by cancer,” Ms Crawford said. 

“These supports are to assist those who need comfort for their mastectomy and or their hysterectomy areas where the seatbelt compresses on the body. 

“They are adjustable to each person's requirements and they attach to the seatbelt by Velcro.” 

Currently All Women is selling the supports for $30 each and can be purchased either in store or over the phone. 

Ms Crawford is working on getting the supports medically certified and is looking forward to more exciting designs in the future.
