Cherie Mathews of Heal in Comfort
Cherie Mathews has a LOT of roles. This includes being a wife, a mother, a friend, a social supporter, an avid motorcycle rider, a breast cancer survivor, and the inventor of Heal in Comfort. She is responsible for how thousands of patients heal after surgery due to cancer. She accomplishes this with a shirt, some accessories, and a positive attitude.
After being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2000, Cherie opted for a double mastectomy. Afterwards, she quickly found that there was no proper clothing for the recovery period. This inspired her to start Heal in Comfort and to create a post-op recovery shirt and kit. The kit includes a super soft medical device shirt, a surgical drain pouch, and a lanyard to hold the drains allowing for an independent and hands free shower.
Heal in Comfort now offers a full line of recovery wear for both women and men. Cherie also created a nonprofit organization called Heal in Comfort 4 a Change 501(c)3 that focuses on making the Heal in Comfort shirt available in as many hospitals as possible not only for cancer patients, but for organ transplants, heart surgery, and other invasive operations.
