Bra Couture KC launched in 2010 partnership with the University of Kansas Cancer Center with the express purpose to provide funds for a Patient In Need Fund for uninsured/underinsured cancer patients for access to key appearance items at Missys’ Boutique; a center created by the parents of two beautiful young women, both names Missy, named in their honor. Today the center is managed by both mothers of these young women.
To-date, Bra Couture KC has donated close to $550,000 to this center, expanding our funds to cover lymphedema garments and creating a $50,000 fund for lymphedema services in general. Unfortunately insurance does not provide for lymphedema care, a life-threatening condition resulting from cancer in both men and women.
Conveniently located on the main level of the Richard and Annette Bloch Cancer Care Pavilion in Westwood, Kansas, Missys’ Boutique features inviting retail space, a salon area and a private fitting room. In a comfortable setting, cancer patients and survivors can consult with a licensed professional, receive services and select products created just for them.
