Breast Cancer Awareness Is Not Just for October: Meet Leah Wyrick, Entrepreneur

October Is Breast Cancer Awareness Month


As Breast Cancer Awareness Month draws to a close, meet college student and business owner, Leah Wyrick. Her journey providing moral support during her mother’s own difficult experience with breast cancer pushed her to become an entrepreneur and the founder of Three Strands Recovery Wear. Through her company, she has been developing strategically designed and comfortable bras that can make recovery from breast cancer a much easier experience.

Leah is currently a junior at Wake Forest University, but in 2016 when she was 15 years old, her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer and had a mastectomy as well as reconstructive surgery. Her mother’s physician and certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Samuel Roy, shared with Leah his frustration with the existing types of mastectomy bras on the market for his recovering patients.

Her mother’s experience left a lasting impression on Leah. In her desire to help women like her mom and others with their struggles through post-surgery recovery, she utilized Dr. Roy’s expertise and insight as well as her mother’s specific needs and feedback as she designed the first prototype for the patent pending Resilience Bra. Her goal was to help reduce the number of post-surgical complications, including infection, drainage issues, and discomfort that women can experience after breast related surgeries. Leah is absolutely passionate about helping women improve the quality of their recovery. She says that her company is built on putting the comfort and healing of patients first. With her mother, Nancy, as proof that her early prototype bra could truly help women in the recovery process, Leah’s goal is for each patient to have successful post-surgical results with her one-of-a-kind, fitted, and fashionable recovery bras.
