WEST KNOXVILLE, Tenn (WVLT) -- It is breast cancer awareness month and even though Sue Klipsch doesn't know anyone who has been diagnosed with the disease, she still wants to help.
She makes Knitted Knockers. They are a knit form of a breast prosthesis.
She has made around 200, in all sizes (cups) and colors. She even makes them for vol fans and in colors to match your clothing.
Sue donates them to her salon the Orange Curl where they pass them out to women who need them.
She also gives them to the Susan G, Komen affiliate in Knoxville.
Jane Brannon the executive director, is a survivor. She says they can use more of the knitted knockers.
Brannon says they work well for many women who cannot afford the prosthesis and those who just find them uncomfortable.
If you know how to knit or crochet and want to learn how to make the knitted knockers, give Jane Brannon a call at the Susan G. Komen office in Knoxville. Thgey want to start up a group!
