Angela Grojean was diagnosed with breast cancer, specifically Invasive Ductal Carcinoma, on November 13, 2018 and underwent a double mastectomy on December 10, 2018. Post-surgery, Angela had 4 tubes with drains for several weeks during her recovery.
Luckily for Angela, she received the gift of a zip up hoodie that contained inside pockets to hold the drains comfortably and securely, with the added bonus of being discreet.
Realizing her good fortune and wanting to “pay it forward,” Angela has set out to gift a zip up hoodie, like the one she received, to anyone going through this type of breast cancer surgery. This hoodie has normal pockets on the outside, but also pockets inside to disguise the tubes and drains and keep them from pulling on the skin. The hoodie has an abundance of pockets, hence, the name “Abundant Pocket Hoodie” was adopted.
Named after her blog, Living in Abundance Limited was established as a 501(c)3 public charity to raise funds to enable us to provide a complimentary hoodie to breast cancer patients undergoing a mastectomy.
