FemPower Belt: Empowering Women After Surgery

In October of 2012, Erica Misorek, was facing a mastectomy and reconstruction process.

“As part of my recovery, I had drains, and I wanted to hide them from my children. I just didn’t want to upset them,” she said.

Erica created a fun and functional solution she called the femPower Belt, a fabric belt designed to hold and hide surgical drains.
