Isabel Strydom National Diploma in Food and Clothing Technology
Isabel Strydom has a background in studies of anatomy, physiology, and clothing technology. During 2001, she realised that after going through mastectomy, South African women were being left with few options. The available breast prostheses were poor and specially designed bras were not available at all. It was as though cancer survivors weren’t expected to care anymore about pretty, well-fitting clothes!
Fired up to change this situation, Isabel completed the necessary training. She now has a registered practice – the only one of its kind to serve the women of Port Elizabeth and surrounding areas. Personal fittings take place by appointment, at no charge, in the privacy of her home.
As part of the service, Isabel liaises with medical aids: most schemes will cover the costs, either from the appliance benefit or from the oncology benefit.
Call Isabel on 082 484 8358 or 041-3673095 for more information or to make an appointment.
