Petition Asks Victoria's Secret to Make Bras for Breast Cancer Survivors


Company has not yet made public statement
Lingerie giant Victoria's Secret is being asked to create bras for survivors of breast cancer who have undergone mastectomy surgery. Allana Maiden, 27, of Richmond, Va. was inspired to create the petition by her mother, a 21-year breast cancer survivor who had a mastectomy, wears a prosthesis, and must drive a long way from her home in rural Saltville, Va., to a specialty store to find a bra that fits. Maiden wrote:

"There are so many women out there, like my mom, who have survived breast cancer but are left feeling altered and uncomfortable because of undergoing chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. I think they deserve to feel beautiful and Victoria's Secret is the perfect company to help make that happen with a line of "Survivor" mastectomy bras. Victoria's Secret stores are located all across America and the sales women are always helpful with fittings. The designs are beautiful and can do wonders to boost a woman's self esteem, which is definitely needed after a life-changing experience like breast cancer and major surgery."

The petition currently has over 100,000 signatures. (NY Daily News)
