CONFIANZA’s main goal was to provide high quality breast forms/ prosthesis and post surgical    bras to breast cancer patients and survivors in the Philippines.

It was initiated by breast cancer survivor and advocate Maria Fe “Fetty” P. Commeyne, a former college teacher, researcher, trainer married to Guido, a Belgian national, who were blessed with two sons.   Though concerned by the absence of high quality prosthesis and of genuine mastectomy bras in the local market, she also believed that having these products available locally would  aid in the healing process of fellow survivors and breast cancer patients.   However,   in August 2009,  she lost the battle with breast cancer.

She was succeeded by fellow breast cancer survivor, Leonor L. Gopuco. Stepping up to the challenge, the company wants to provide a wide range of products by American Breast Care to help improve lives of breast cancer patients and survivors. The art of measuring the right bra and breast prosthesis has since benefitted more women.  Adding to the existing product base, visiting clients had other needs… headwear, wigs, compression sleeves and stockings, compression vests, even accessories. Confianza sought to meet their needs by sourcing known brands. It also sought local offerings but to be honest, the volume. for these products are not there and may not be able to sustain any single supplier.  Confianza is therefore a work in progress… it seeks to professionalize the art of mastectomy fitting in the Philippines.  With a cancer survivor at the helm of a small business venture which continually listens to the needs of fellow patients is also a good thing. That’s because we know what you went through and how you feel when going theough treatments and its side effects. Ultimately, we want Confianza to be the go-to shop for the cancer community in the Philippines. Celebrate life…
