“Wearing an elegant robe to each one of my treatments made me feel like a queen staring down cancer.” -Toby Israel

My journey to develop the ‘Robe to Wellness’ began when I was diagnosed with early-stage breast cancer. Wearing an elegant robe to each of my radiation treatments made me feel like a queen, staring down cancer. Now, using this experience and my expertise as a design psychologist, I’ve developed a naturally nurturing robe with a healing ‘Well Wishes’ message.
Where do the messages come from? Anyone who wants to surround women on a healing journey with love and support can post a ‘Well Wishes’ message on this site. The messages, transformed into labels, are then sewn into the robe’s collar by Sewing Circles at local cancer support centers. Such on-line and in-person social networking spreads the word, “Go girl! You are not alone.”
P.S. Please take a moment to send women on the road to recovery your well wishes message.
