FinD Care & ConFiDenCe at HealtHQuest and my emotional needs. I felt cared for. Imagine stepping into a store that’s all about you. A place where staff understands and cares about the unique needs of women touched by breast cancer or with breast care challenges. What do you want women to know? Imagine walking into a welcoming, airy oasis with expert fitters who can help love who you see in the mirror.

And where, if you need a breast form, or a balancer, you’ll be perfectly fitted with the best technologically advanced options in the world. I love the large fitting room. I also get fitted with flattering bra sets, swimwear, and more by Amoena. Every piece helps me feel secure and happy. If you’re dealing with a breast challenge, you don’t need to do it alone. Let a HealthQuest expert fitter look after you. She understands your needs, and has excellent solutions. For instance, Amoena makes post-surgery camisoles to heal in greater comfort. I wish I’d known that! That special place is HealthQuest. As soon as you step through our doors, you’ll know we’re not your average store. Just ask a customer like Kerry Chaytor-Crummey. Kerry, thanks for sharing your story. What brought you to HealthQuest? In 2015, I went to my doctor after feeling something unusual near my arm. I had just turned 44, with two young daughters, and no family history of breast cancer. I was in shock. I had a mastectomy of my right breast and two of the 11 lymph nodes surgically removed were cancerous. What helped you through the worst days? My amazing family, friends and boyfriend, my faith, and the cancer support group, Sharing our Strength. I discovered HealthQuest through my involvement with the group, and I’m so happy I did. Did you have reconstructive surgery? No, I’m not sure when I will. But since being fitted at HealthQuest with an Amoena breast form, I live an active life – I’m a parent helper with my daughters’ volleyball teams – in total confidence about how I look. What was the fitting experience like for you? Empowering. I now have three Amoena breast forms. One of them is a Contact Comfort+. This one adheres directly to the chest wall and adapts to my body temperature. Another is the AquaWave, made specifically for swimming. My HealthQuest fitter took the time to know me so she could match me with the ideal breast form for my body, my lifestyle, 2 Imagine stepping into a store that’s all about you. I can confirm Amoena breast forms feel and look like a natural breast, and definitely pass the hug test. Plus, Amoena has the world’s largest collection of invisible, natural feeling, balancers to fill out your cup after a lumpectomy or if you have two different sized breasts, which so many women do! Think of your HealthQuest fitter as part of your wellness team. We all feel stronger and heal faster when we’re comfortable and confident about how we look, and we can count on our HealthQuest fitter for that! 300 Kenmount Rd, Suite 104 | St John’s | 709.754.5944
