Mission Statement

Shop Well with You, a national not-for-profit organization, helps women with a history of cancer improve their body-image and quality of life by using clothing as a means toward wellness. Through education, outreach, and personalized services, SWY focuses on the woman, not the cancer, in order to provide support and promote survivorship.

Description

Shop Well with You offers three programs: à ·Information Resource Program: Through our website, www.shopwellwithyou.org, and written materials, women can learn about clothing styles for cancer-related treatments and side-effects, search for specific garments, read body-image-related articles and books, and share ideas with other cancer survivors on our online Bulletin Board. à ·One-on-One Service: Women nationwide can contact SWY to request personalized assistance specific to their body-image-related needs via phone, mail, email, or our website. SWY prepares a packet of information tailored to address each womanâ  s unique request, complete with general tips, pictures, and prices as well as where to purchase the suggested garments. à ·Fashion Your Own Sense of Self Outreach: During these interactive seminars held at hospitals and support organizations throughout New York City, participants use clothing and accessories to learn how color, fabric, and the cut of garments can help boost their confidence during and after cancer surgery and treatments.
