Cleveland, Ohio (WEWS) —Two women in Ohio empower others by improving the mood and appearance of those fighting breast cancer during treatment.

Dennis West has many titles, including Breast Cancer Survivors. She was diagnosed with cancer in 2013.

“No one in my family had breast cancer,” she said. “We did a biopsy, which had spread to the lymph nodes and was therefore classified as stage 2.”

West was familiar with the uniform scrub that she and other women had to wear during chemotherapy at the University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center. Although these scrubs are designed for easy access to the chemotherapy port, West also said they were very uncomfortable. So she went online to look for something better.

“I wanted something classy for women to feel good,” West said.

But no luck.

West’s husband helped contact East 36th and Cleveland fashion designer Diane Linston, owner of Payne’s clothing maker DYL Designs.

The pair designed and created a blouse with velcro openings on the front and sides to make women fashionable during chemotherapy. The blouse design also includes a matching headscarf.

Focus groups have also been created to help the duo design blouses.

“I just wanted to hear their opinion on whether to buy this. What is the need for this type?”

The COVID-19, of course, caused production and shipping delays, but the duo wants to sell their blouses online.

The DWest & Company website will be available soon. The pair will also sell blouses at the hospital gift shop.
