Heal in Comfort was started by Cherie B. Mathews, after her own battle with breast cancer. Mathews is now a 12-year survivor, and designed the shirt based on what she wished she had had during her surgery recovery. She also created a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization that provides these specialized post-operative recovery healincomfort shirts to breast cancer patients as a gift to speed their recovery.
The Austin Creative Alliance is funded in part by the City of Austin through the Economic Development Department's Cultural Arts Division and by grants from Texas Commission on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts which believes that a great nation deserves great art. The Creative Alliance also receives generous in-kind support from CreateAustin, and Time Warner Cable News. We are also grateful for the ongoing support and participation of our members and patrons.
