NewTV Breast Cancer Survivor Stories

NewTV Breast Cancer Survivor Stories

Newton-based NewTV Production Services recently partnered with intimate apparel retailer Lady Grace Intimate Apparel to create a video telling the story of how the 80-year-old chain of Massachusetts stores helped share the stories of three breast cancer survivors and Lady Grace customers. The video captures the stories of three women who share their experience, encourage early detection through mammography, and finding confidence and beauty again through compassionate care and selection of quality post-surgery breast cancer products, from breast forms and specialized bras selected by trained fitters. In addition to assisting thousands of devoted survivors, Lady Grace also handles bra modifications and the insurance carriers and subsequent paperwork. Most insurance carriers cover at least 80 percent and in some cases 100 percent of the cost of breast forms and bras, minimizing out of pocket expenses.

“It was a privilege to tell these brave women’s stories,” said Melinda Garfield, NewTV Production Services Manager. “These are courageous stories, and we were honored to be chosen by Lady Grace to capture these women’s experiences on video in the hopes that it will help other women find out about these caring services and products.”

“Unless you are breast cancer survivor, it’s difficult to understand or relate to the fact that cancer can take more than just body parts,” said survivor Linda of Danvers, Mass. “On the inside, I wasn’t whole. So what happened when I put that bra on, not only was it a beautiful bra, but there was a wonderful woman standing there and she said to me, ‘It’s beautiful, and you are beautiful.’  I felt… beautiful.”
