NEW YORK, Jan. 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Billow Global introduces the Billow, the first premium breast support pillow for millions of women who have discomfort resulting from breast surgery.
Launched on its website, www.billowglobal.com, the Billow was developed by CEO/Founder Marnie Rustemeyer who conceived and designed the Billow following her diagnosis with the breast cancer gene mutation, a mastectomy and subsequent reconstructive surgeries. Rustemeyer conducted more than a year of research and development before launching it as a post surgical aide.
"Having been a breast surgery patient myself, I saw the need for an organic and luxurious pillow that provides comfort and breast support to help the millions of women with breast senstivities sleep; which is extremely important to healing, gaining confidence, and feeling beautiful again," said Marnie Rustemeyer, Founder and CEO. "I also felt it was important for the Billow to have a multitude of uses for women to appreciate long term."
As part of its launch in December 2014, the company donated 50 pillows each to the following institutions: Weill Cornell Breast Center; Inova Healthcare Foundation; The Breast Cancer Research Foundation & The Pink Agenda, and Cancer Support Center of Central NJ. It is also committed to donating a portion of the proceeds from every Billow sold to breast cancer research.
Made in the USA of domestic, organic, and toxin-and-cruelty-free materials, Billow molds to a women's curves, particularly helpful for women with breast sensitivities. It is also designed with a raised and firmer torso portion to relieve breast pressure and to alleviate lower back strain that commonly occurs when women lie on their stomachs.
Founder and CEO, Marnie Rustemeyer conceived, designed, and created the Billow following her diagnosis with the BRCA (breast cancer) gene, a mastectomy, and subsequent reconstructive surgeries. The Billow was developed as a sleep aide after more than a year of research and development. Additionally, Marnie conducted exhaustive testing of products to aid in the recovery process and was unable to find an effective, yet comfortable solution.
After real-world testing and by popular demand, Marnie left her 15+ year career on Wall Street to bring the Billow to market and help the millions of women who suffer from sleep deprivation due to some form of breast pain-finally get some rest.
