Owner & Cancer Coach
Certified Mastectomy Fitter
I, Bev Ramsey, would like to introduce myself. My background is in Finance and Management, so what drew me to a mastectomy business? It was time for a career change and a business in Ft. Smith, AR, asked if I would be a bilateral model for one of their vendors who was doing a training. I had had breast cancer in 2006 and had to have a bilateral mastectomy. After heavy deliberation with myself about allowing others to see me naked from the waist up, I agreed. After the training, I realized not everyone was a mastectomy fitter and this was a very sensitive issue for most ladies.
In March of 2013, I googled mastectomy boutiques, found Pink Ribbon in Russellville and went to speak to the owner, Carolyn Gray. She had received her Medicare card and was thinking of selling and I said I was thinking of buying, but I wasn’t really. After meeting all the requirements, and there were many, thus the purchase of Pink Ribbon Boutique, January 1, 2014.
I am a breast cancer survivor, who had breast cancer in 2003 and again in 2006. In 2003 I had a lumpectomy and chose no treatment, opting to go the natural route. In 2006 I had a reoccurrence in the same breast, and opted for a double mastectomy. I also had to undergo chemo and radiation therapy. After the 20th radiation treatment I developed lymphedema in my right arm and hand. Thankfully, my oncology nurse told me what I had and sent me to a lymphatic therapist. Lymphedema is another whole story, for another day. At the time of my second diagnosis my son and only child was 9, a 4th grader, and my only prayer was that I would see him graduate high school. My prayer was answered and my son graduated in 2014 and is doing very well. As for me, God has a new purpose in my life and that is educating and helping every woman I can who has entered or is entering the journey I have been on for 12 years!!.
