Today my husband Shane and I we invited, along with about 60 other blood donors to be recognised for donation milestones during a breakfast at the Surf Club Mooloolaba. Shane has donated on over 160 occasions....One donor today was recognised for donating over 450 times in his life.
Each donation helps save the life of 3 people....have you ever stopped and wondered where a donation to a charity really goes? EVERY lifesaving blood donation helps save the life of someone!
If you know someone who's eligible to donate, ask them to take the time to roll their sleeve up during National Blood Donors Week...Its an unbeatable feeling! p.s Shane's the guy on the right!

I visited your store at Maroochydore yesterday & just wanted to say thank you for what you do. I first met you in 2014 when you came to my house. I am so happy for all of us that you now have a shop!!
I experienced great service even though i had lost my voice & it was hard for me to communicate. I left very happy with my purchases and now feel more confident in my clothes as I have a much better shape.
I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone I know. Please also say a big thank you to your sales assistant, Mel for all of her great advice.
Start with the basics
Overcoming something as emotionally and physically challenging as a mastectomy creates huge changes in a woman’s life. Inevitably, there’s also a new set of considerations when choosing an outfit. Once you’re comfortable with the basics, however, there’s no reason why your surgery should limit the range of your wardrobe, or hamper your own sense of style.
Loose-fitting tops with modest necklines are an easy starting point. With the right breast form and bra combination, you can achieve a look of natural symmetry without showing cleavage.
Create a Focus PointPerfect for casual or smart dressing, tops with gathers, knots, drapes and ruffles can give your outfit texture and create a focus point.
Improvise on the GoWear the clothes you love. Don’t rule out a dress or top with a revealing neckline until you try it on with a cami. Alternatively, a scarf could provide the coverage you need.
Find the Perfect FitWhen shopping for tailored dresses, take note of where the dart sits. This will give you an idea on how a dress or shirt will fit around the breast area before you have even tried it on.
Bra support and comfort is a must. Ensure you have one of these three essentials on hand for any occasion.
Non-wired soft braIf you’re feeling tender, this is a softer alternative to an underwire bra. Look for a bra with slight padding for extra comfort.
T-shirt braThis should be a staple in every woman’s wardrobe. Comfortable and slightly padded with moulded cups, T-shirt bras are smooth under your clothes without showing any visible lines.
Front-Closure braAn essential after a mastectomy, a front-closure bra is easy to fasten and is more convenient to use in case range of motion in the arms is a challenge.
Last week we had a lovely group of ladies from the Widebay Breast Cancer support group visit us at Tracey G Maroochydore. Widebay consists of area such as Hervey Bay, Gympie, Maryborough and everywhere in between.
The morning started with some champagne on arrival and morning tea. Some of our guests took the opportunity to be fitted for, and purchased their new prosthesis and lingerie on the day. Some were were fitted up in preparation for the time they're due later on in the year.
After that, it was time take the opportunity to visit local shopping centres such as Sunshine Plaza as well, then enjoy lunch across the road at the Maroochydore RSL. Heres what Doreen had to say about her day.....
"Hi Tracey & Girls,
I just wanted to say thank you for the morning tea and the wonderful service I received during my visit to your store on Friday 26th May. Your kindness, understanding and professionalism is fantastic & you should all be proud of yourselves & your dedication to what you do. It is @ times a confronting experience (especially for those who are going through it for the first time) and you made it a wonderful relaxing experience. I will be recommending you to a lot of ladies who are in need of the service you provide.
DOREEN DRIVER 😊😚😚👍👍👍"

Well as each season passes the selections are getting more beautiful. The latest Amoena range of lingerie, sportswear and leisurewear has taken mastectomy wear to a whole new level.
With lace bras, new lace singlets and PJ's. The other wonderful thing about this collection is the fabrics! Not itchy lace however subtle lace of the highest quality to make these garments a dream to wear. Come in to store and see the latest ranges.
Amoena have teamed up with high-end swimwear designer Melissa Odabash to create a new range of designer swimwear for women who have had breast cancer surgery. This new collection will also help raise funds for breast cancer charity Future Dreams, with a portion of every sale going directly to the charity.
Melissa Odabash is one of the world’s top swimwear designers and Vogue recently hailed her designs as the ‘Ferraris’ of swimwear. Melissa told Lingerieblog.co.uk a bit more about the collection “At the end of the day, women just want to feel great. These pieces are made from the same fabric as my main collection, in the same designs. The only difference is that some of them are just a little higher cut to offer the support and security that women want when they have had breast surgery.”
The new collection arrived in store today and we were all very excited to try on these beautiful pieces. The fabrics are so soft and beautiful truly high end.
The hardest part after breast surgery or a lumpectomy is finding a comfortable non underwire bra to wear while your healing. We have introduced a range of bras up to JJ and we are expanding all the time.
While not always the prettiest bras the comfort and support far outweighs pretty flowers on uncomfortable foundations.
Jeanie at our Auchenflower store has been a corsetiere for 30 years and her experience can help you regardless of whether you have had breast surgery to not!

Attached is a story of one of our wonderful breast care nurses. Cathy Apelt was actually the breast care nurse who suggested I start my business. So I guess you could say we owe it all to her!
Great to see these stories being shared. Its a dedication to all of our wonderful breast care nurses.
