Marie has been certified as a prosthesis fitter for more than seventeen years. She is a designated provider of Amoena, Trulife and Airway. Marie owned and operated a Lingerie and Mastectomy boutique in British Columbia for ten years before relocating to the Markham area. She now focuses only on Mastectomy products and Professional Bra Fittings.
She believes you can actually enjoy shopping for a new you after lumpectomy or mastectomy surgery and even find just the right European-style bathing suit.
Marie works directly with various hospitals and cancer clinics in the Greater Toronto Area to help breast cancer patients with post-surgery needs. She also actively participates in Breast Cancer Awareness fund raising events.

The Importance Of Wearing A Breast Prosthesis
The fitting of a breast prosthesis is not only for aesthetic appearance, it is also a therapeutic measure that replaces the weight of the breast. When fitted with a breast prosthesis that matches in size to the remaining breast, the weight equilibrium of the body is kept in balance. Not wearing a breast prosthesis or wearing one that is heavier or lighter can result in the following:
- Spinal curvature
- Shoulder drop
- Muscle contracture (pain)
- Balance problems
