Image Ehancement Center

To aid patients in coping with the appearance-related effects of breast cancer, our Image Enhancement Center provides a Woman-to-Woman program offering help with headcoverings and scarves to cope with hair loss. Evelyn's Corner, a specialty resource section in HealthLinks, offers information and a specialized selection of garments and helpful products for women undergoing breast surgery and breast reconstruction.
