Betsy Murphy opened Bosom Buddies in Kanawha City as a resource for cancer patients. A breast cancer survivor twice over, Murphy opened her boutique after she noted a lack of support and services for cancer patients.

The shop, which held its grand opening this weekend, offers cancer patients post-surgery supplies and clothing, including mastectomy breast forms, swimwear and colostomy accessories.

In addition to offering a selection of wigs, as tried on by support team member Ashley McMillion, the store features spa and salon services. Bosom Buddies, located on 3716 MacCorkle Ave, can be reached at 304-925-8808 and online at www.bosombuddieswv.com.
