  1. I have a neighbor who cannot afford any equipment and she feels embarrassed after her surgery. Can I fill out the form for knitted knockers on her behalf?

    • Hi Haley! I think it’s very kind of you to think of your friend. Your best (and quickest) bet is to follow the link to the Knitted Knockers website and ask them directly.
