WHY A KNITTED KNOCKER - There are over 50K mastectomies in the US each year.  Prostheses are expensive, hot and heavy; Knitted Knockers are soft, lightweight and huggable; each one is made by a volunteer knitter or crocheter.  The 500,000 hand-knit/crochet breast protheses was handed out in early 2023.


In 2011 I had a mastectomy and I was not an immediate candidate for reconstructive surgery.  My first Knocker was knit by my friend, Phyllis. It is hard to describe how grateful I was to be able to look presentable within a short time after surgery.  Since then I have organized a small group of volunteers to supply our local doctors with Knitted Knockers.  In 2014, I was recognized by the Susan G Koman Foundation and US Bowling Congress and received national attention for   My goal now is to connect volunteer knitters and crocheters with breast cancer survivors everywhere so that everyone has a “Phyllis” in their life.

Please visit our Facebook page and for personal stories and more information.  Our group is easy to find, we have the pink ribbon in the logo and are located in Bellingham WA.  We ship knockers throughout the United States.
