NEW! - Forever Flowers Paintings!

Everyone knows that while real bouquets of flowers ARE beautiful, they provide a very short window of enjoyment opportunity - ESPECIALLY when considering what we pay for them.

Why not give a survivor you love (or ANYONE else for that matter) one of Ethel's beautiful framed "Forever Flower" paintings whose floral beauty will last indefinitely?

Check out Renee's large collection of these the next time you visit Renee's Survivor Shop!




Renee's Survivor Shop is happy announce that we are now carrying the ChemoBeanies line, which include 8 beautiful recently introduced designs!

NEW! - Chemo Beanies Turbans!

When asked what the difference is between traditional cancer turbans and Chemo Beanies, the makers replied:

"Traditional cancer turbans seem like a great idea, but we found they still make you look bald, just covered with fabric. The unique bunching of the fabric of our Chemo Beanies and ruffles on the black of neck provides an illusion of hair."

Here is some feedback that the Chemo Beanies company has received from the people purchasing and wearing their products:

"I am so happy with my ChemoBeanie. It is very comfortable, needs no adjusting, and I'm finding it much more comfortable than wearing my wig around the house..." -- Diane

?My friend Bobbie bought one of your ChemoBeanies for her sister. Her sister loves it. Thanks for putting a smile on her face during this rough time!!! --Andrea B.

" I love my "ANGELLE" in black. I wear the ruffle up to the side over my ear to give it a more "chic" look and I love the SHERI with the shimmer in it. " ---Ellen H.

" We are excited to provide your darling ChemoBeanies to our customers! " --Lynne's Wig Boutique , Utah

"Beautiful! I love my ChemoBeanie. I have the ANGELLE one and I love it! It's very comfortable and I get compliments all of the time. I'll be ordering more soon!" --Franny M.


If you are someone you know are in need of this kind of unique headcovering, be sure to drop by the shop and Renee's staff will be happy to show you our entire stock!

NEW! - Pambra's Bra and Tummy Liners!

Don't Sweat it.. Absorb it ...with Pambra's bra and tummy liners. Renee's Survivor Shop is now a proud distributor of Pambra's, The Original Bra and Tummy Liners.

Pambra's, The Original bra liner, is a soft cotton liner worn in the existing bra. Pambra's absorbs perspiration under and between the breasts. Pambra's also adds comfort to under wire and irritating elastic- most important this time of year!!

Doctor recommended to stop heat rash/fungus. Five breast surgeons from Virginia Mason Hospital, Seattle WA sent a nurse to find Pambra's Unilateral and Bilateral designs. We think that speaks volumes for our products. Pambra's are now a part of their surgical package on not one floor but four!

Pambra's newest product, the Original TUMMY liner, is for the lower abdominal fold of "plus size" people. This product has become Pambra's number two in sales in just two months.

You owe it to yourself to try out these fantastic new liners during the *hottest time* of the year. Let us help you provide comfort to all your customers.

The original bra liner is available in sizes small through 2X. This Original Bra Liner may be worn with or without a bra. For example, after your evening shower under your pendulum breast.

Available in Beige, Black, and White, sold in a package of 3, and machine washable!

We also carry the NEW Unilateral Liner. The Unilateral Liner is available in small through 2X. White only, sold in packages of 3, and machine washable. The Unilateral Liner is designed to protect the chest wall and provide more rib coverage on side of the removed breast, while it still features the slender band for the remaining breast.

Also NEW is the Bilateral Liner. The Bilateral Liner is available in small through 2X. White only, sold in packages of 3, and machine washable. Our Bilateral Liner is special because it is uniquely designed to protect the chest wall on both sides and provides extra coverage on the side ribs.

Finally, we also carry Pambra's Nursing Pad product. We offer our nursing pads in packaged sets of 5. They are 5 inches around for perfect coverage and absorption. Like our Liners, Pambra's Nursing Pads are durable, thick, and machine washable. Only available in white.

The quality of Pambra's is immeasurable! Pambra's materials and workmanship is un-surpassed by any of the imposter liners. Pambra's Bra Liners do not shrink or come apart. Pambra's is a wash and wear product; washing allows them to become softer over time. Pambra's Bra Liners last for years, unlike your other garments. The Pambra's company says that they are proud to say that they've never had a single return.

    RENEE'S SURVIVORS SHOP IS NOW PROVIDING LYMPHEDEMA RELIEF!

    Treatments with the Lymphstar Pro device are now available at Renee's Survivor Shop to help clients manage their condition. This is a very relaxing and effective treatment to manage lymphedema.

    The device uses gentle sound pressure waves and a mild electro-static field to improve lymphatic flow and allow a deeper lymphatic drainage than other forms of lymphatic massage.

    We are seeing some wonderful results which have allowed clients dealing with this condition to reduce or even eliminate the use of other compression items such as bandages or compression garments.

    Treatments are completed in a private room at Renee's Survivor Shop. They are *not* covered by insurance, but are offered at a reasonable cost. The cost is comparable (or less!) than a lymphatic massage offered by massage therapists. Plus, the recipient is receiving lymphedema education along with treatment!

    Most people find the treatment sessions very relaxing and comfortable, and find that afterwards their swelling symptoms have been relieved, which is the primary goal!

    Keep in mind however, a single treatment is not a one time quick fix. You will learn this AND much more when you come in for a treatment or to simply ask more questions.

    Call the shop today to schedule your appointment! We're looking forward to helping Renee's Survivor Shop customers achieve relief from the trials of lymphedema!

    LYMPHSTAR PRO AND CUSTOMER TESTIMONIALS

    Date: Tue, 22 Jan 2008 15:06:49 -0800
    From: txxxxxxx@buckeye-express.com
    Subject: testimonial

    Due to long hours on my feet because of my job requirements, I developed swollen feet and legs along with arm, neck, and shoulder pain from upper body repetitive motion. Getting no relief from conventional treatments, I tried the Lymphstar Pro machine treatment for lymph drainage. I experienced remarkable improvement after several treatments, so much that I purchased the machine for my own use. Using the machine three times weekly, I have additionally noticed a remarkable reduction in legs and buttocks cellulite, and also a significant firming of my facial and neck areas.

    Subject: RE: Lymphstar Pro

    I am 39 years old, married, and the mother of a three year old and a four year old. Shortly after giving birth to my children I began having severe health related symptoms ranging from fatigue, hair falling out, weight loss, anxiety, constipation, insomnia, water retention, fibrocystic breast disease, and the list continued to grow. Conventional medicine failed me in many ways and I began looking for alternatives. I found a holistic medical doctor who has assisted me in understanding that my symptoms basically grew out of two autoimmune diseases. Hashimoto's disease (thyroid), and Celiac disease (inability to process wheat and gluten). After eliminating wheat and gluten from my diet and beginning to take natural medication to enhance my thyroid I began to feel better, but not great. I have been fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to find the Lymphstar Pro. Immediately after using it for the first time I began to see results. I felt better and had more energy to get me through my busy days. I also noticed an immediate change in the way I retained water- I wasn't! I could see that by using the Lymphstar Pro I began to feel lighter because I wasn't carrying extra fluid. Ironically, a few weeks after I started the lymphatic massage, I had to have a mammogram because of the pain and swelling I was having in my breasts due to the fibrocystic breast disease. The mammogram came back clear and I have not had the pain and swelling return. I will continue to use the Lymphstar Pro for general overall health. I believe that it assists my body in cleansing and eliminating unwanted toxins in a safe and unobtrusive way.

    I am thankful that I have had the opportunity to find the Lymphstar Pro to assist me in maintaining my health.

    THE LYMPHSTAR PRO! Lymphstar Pro?

    Renee's Survivor Shop is proud to offer an outstanding instrument for use by health professionals and individual customers alike - The Lymphstar Pro!

    It is now being regarded as the premier product in its genre. Having evolved out of a decade of research, technological and design improvements, and user-feedback, you can feel confident that you have found the best.

    The Lymphstar Pro is used in applications related to moving lymph and the detoxification or clearing of tissue as it relates to the lymphatic system. It incorporates light (photonic) and sound (harmonics) with noble gas ionization into a therapeutic system of outstanding effectiveness and versatility.

    The Lymphstar Pro? is an electronic massage tool that gently stimulates the nerves and muscles to increase lymph flow. When lymph flow is stagnant due to lifestyle, or blocked by scar tissue, the terrain of the body may not be properly fed with nutrients or cleansed of toxins.

    Therapy heads are applied to the skin on various areas of the body. A relaxing session will leave you feeling refreshed, with benefits accruing over several sessions. It can assist with pain issues, swelling and edema, wound healing, skin enhancement, and much more.

    The Lymphstar Pro? technology is a combination of electro-static energy and sound pressure waves. It has been safely used by hundreds of health practitioners and home users for over 13 years. It was developed by the mother of a childhood cancer survivor and is manufactured by her company, Arcturus Star Products, L.L.P. in the USA.

    We invite you to try the therapy for a total health and beauty experience! Home use can be arranged (by purchase) for those requiring maintenance on a regular basis.

    ? Lori Malec Sweet, Arcturus Star Products, L.L.P., 2007

Women wear the ENELL to play tennis, golf, volleyball, basketball, softball, ride horses, run, jog and in everyday workplaces.

We sincerely believe the ENELL will become an indispensable part of your active lifestyle.

I've been in search of a sports bra that provides support for the last eight years and nothing comes close to the ENELL!" The ENELL comes in ten sizes to fit most women from a 32 to a 60-inch bust measurement.
