women will develop breast cancer
over the course of their lifetime
an estimated 266,120 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S
women have already encountered breast cancer
during their lifetime
We use a state-of-the-art 3D scanner to scan the patient and generate a 3D image of their breast.
We use the most advanced technology in 3D printing and high-grade silicone to generate the breast that looks, feels, and behaves just like the original.
We deliver the silicone breast to the patient which can be placed comfortably inside the bra.
Many women undergo mastectomy surgery that can be painful, expensive, and may alter the shape of the breast forever. To restore the breast shape and size, some women may elect to surgically undergo and implant silicone. However, this procedure, which is often expensive and is not covered by most insurance plans, also follows a long recovery time period.
This is why we founded this nonprofit organization that aims to help women battle some of the psychological distress that follows mastectomy surgery. We provide a near-exact 3D-printed silicone replica of the original breast. The silicone prosthetic can be placed inside the bra and give a natural feel and look of a breast that is also comfortable to wear.

Elad Mashiach graduated from New York University cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in Neuroscience and a minor in Chemistry. Elad used his innovative and inquisitive background to establish this organization and give back to others. Elad is a has done research on Hemangioblastoma and Glioblastoma Multiforme brain tumors at NYU Langone Hospital. Elad is currently pursuing a master's degree in Biotechnology from Johns Hopkins University and intends to enroll in medical schools in the future.
Rivkie Zeidman is currently a senior at Barnard College of Columbia University studying psychology. By partnering with Sharsheret, an organization that aims to support young women and their families affected by breast or ovarian cancer, Rivkie hopes to educate students about the importance of understanding one's familial health history and seeking out counsel from medical professionals when certain factors present themselves. Rivkie is also part of a research team at Mount Sinai Hospital studying the impact of comorbidities on cancer survivors. Rivkie intends to attend medical school in 2019 with the goal of specializing in GYN oncology.
CO-FOUNDER AND HEAD OF TECHNOLOGY
Maor Mashiach is currently a freshman at Stevens Institute of Technology. Maor is extremely technology-oriented and helped to design the prototypes for the silicone prosthetics. He is currently working on ways to improve our silicone technology in order to offer more precise silicone breasts. He has also created our website from the ground up and is responsible for maintaining it. His future endeavors include using his technology background to create more medicine-related technologies to benefit others.
