"During the course of five months, I could not have showered, could not have rolled around the bed, and could not have worn street clothes. The Marsupial gave me the comfort of holding the drains without soiling my clothes. I wore the Marsupial over pants and skirts with a shirt over it. I could easily go to the store and could easily use the restroom without having to unpin the drains every time, thanks to the Marsupial."
A Breast Reconstructive Patient
"I would love to see the Marsupial in every doctor's office. It is so comfortable to wear and easy to use. I would recommend every mastectomy patient have one of these given to her prior to surgery."

"The nice thing about the Marsupial Pouch
is that it is designed by a former patient for patients. Its functionality is insightful
because she has been there. It helps
facilitate an easier recovery from
breast cancer surgery because it has
a patient-friendly pouch." Dr. Mary Rippon, Director
Breast Health Center
Greenville Hospital System

"Hospitals would contribute greatly to patient comfort if the Marsupial was provided to each woman after her mastectomy or surgery. The Marsupial removed the need for pinning the tubes to the clothing or taping them on the skin."
