Breast and Lymph Node Cancer

I had a 3 yearly breast scan on March 3rd, the 2nd scan I have had and didn't have any concerns. On 8th March I received a letter calling me back to a local hospital for further scans and tests.

Post surgery bras, wigs etc

As a breast cancer survivor who has had reconstruction now I've got loads of wigs, bras etc I no longer need. Have an idea to create a small enterprise which will sell good quality used items like these for a fraction of the price they would normally be to buy. 60% of the takings would be donated to breast cancer charities. Any thoughts on this? I will add that any donations of items would be very gratefully received.
