THE GIRL BEHIND THE DOLLIES

Charlotte's Story

When Charlotte was just 17 she lost her mum to ovarian cancer, after finding out she carried the BRCA1 mutation Charlotte decided to have a double mastectomy aged just 26 due to her genetic risk. Whilst recovering Charlotte designed a bag to hold post surgical drains in order to make herself feel better and able to do things for herself. After realising how beneficial these were she decided to make these available to all women, whilst raising money for a great charity. Drain dollies are distributed all over the world and come highly recommended by some of the leading breast surgeons. Charlotte continues to work hard in raising awareness of the BRCA mutation and offers support and guidance to others affected.

TESTIMONIALS

These Drain dollies bags are absolutely amazing, such a fantastic idea, no more struggling with your drains. Wished I had these when I'd had my surgery. I've just had a dressing pump put on, so I just got a bag, they are fantastic love it, so many people asked where I got it from & what a fantastic idea, thank you so much Charley xx

I bought these for my auntie for her PBM this week. I had my mastectomy 5 weeks ago and I wish I knew about these then. They would have freed up my hands to be able to do my physiotherapy and hidden the drains whilst looking trendy! Also, they are cheap and 10% goes to charity... What more can you ask!? X

Drain dollies are a fantastic idea, they made life so much easier as I had both hands free all the time. It made going out less stressful too as the drain was completely hidden from view so no one was any the wiser. I was very worried about my children accidently catching the tubing but that was never an issue thanks to my beautiful bag. Thank you for all the support you showed me

These were amazingly useful and meant that mobilising post surgery was much easier. The designs are lovely. The nurses and physics were really impressed with the bags too and kept saying lots of patients would benefit from them

6 days post surgey and my first proper trip out of the house using my Drain dollies. Thank you so much Charley for coming up with this amazing idea it is certainly making my recovery a lot eaiser and has helped me to feel confident leaving the house xx

I don't know how I would've coped without my drain dollies. Turning a horrible experience into a more bearable one. Thank you Drain Dollies xx

Drain dollies were a life saver after my operation. I don't know how I would have got about without them, especially leaving the house. Cannot recommend them enough! Thank you so much xx

Thank you so much for creating Drain Dollies, and for all your positive support Charley. It's made the process so much easier! Xx

I just can't thanks drain dollies enough for making this experience easier to cope with. I had my pbm then a hematoma the next day and was in HDU as well as the breast unit. The dollies were the only thing I needed every single day to build up my strength and mobility. 5 stars (6 if there were an option)

I couldn't recommend the drain dollies enough. After having risk reducing surgery and a double mastectomy I couldn't have managed without my dollies! Such a fantastic idea,service and person xx
