Free Fitting Consultations For Breast Cancer Patients

MELBOURNE, Florida --  TEPAS Breast Center and La Jolie Bra Fitting Salon in Melbourne, Florida have joined forces to support Brevard County’s breast cancer patients by offering ‘free’ fitting consultations.


“This new partnership with TEPAS Breast Center will give our local breast cancer patients an opportunity for both pre and post-operative fitting appointments, at no charge to the patient,” said Ingrid Theys, La Jolie owner.  


“Most women undergoing mastectomy surgery have no idea what to expect in terms of post-mastectomy care garments, bras or breast forms.  Through this partnership, we hope to better educate, thus prepare these women who have unfortunately been diagnosed with
breast cancer and required to undergo mastectomy surgery,” added Theys.


“We believe by having these ‘free’ consultations available for our patients, we are better supporting their post-mastectomy care needs,” said Emran Imami, MD, FACS, TEPAS medical director.


Theys will be available (by appointment only) at TEPAS Breast Center, Monday through Friday, from 8 to 9: 45 am, 1140 Broadband Drive, Melbourne; and at La Jolie Salon, 401 N. Wickham Road, Suite C, during late-morning and afternoon hours.
