After surviving the ordeal of a bilateral mastectomy during her own battle with breast cancer, Ms. H. invented a fashionable new dressing accessory that allows a post-surgery breast cancer patient to focus on getting better rather than on finding suitable clothing.

Without having to pay extra legal fees on top of the medical expenses she was already dealing with, Ms. H. was able to file for a patent with the help of an intellectual property attorney and move another crucial step closer to improving the lives of fellow breast cancer survivors.
