Lisa Goodford, a fit specialist with SMP Home Medical, will speak at the Clearfield Center for Active Living on Oct. 21. Beginning at 1 p.m., she will discuss various mastectomy prosthesis products and choices, and will offer free private fittings to those interested.
After undergoing a breast reconstruction, lumpectomy or mastectomy, there are products designed for all phases of recovery: immediate post-surgery needs, transitional aids and those designed for comfort and appearance. Goodford will make available samples of bras and prosthetics, which are many times covered by private insurance or Medicare.
No reservations are needed for the program. The center is located in the Clearfield County Area Agency on Aging building at 103 N. Front St. in Clearfield. Information on this and other programs, meals and activities is available by calling the Clearfield Center at 814-765-9319 or 1-800-225-8571 or visiting the CCAAA Web site at www.ccaaa.net.
Programs and services of the agency are funded in part by the Pennsylvania Department of Aging, the Clearfield County Area Agency on Aging Inc., Mature Resources Foundation and local and consumer contributions.
