Two Black entrepreneurs in Washington D.C., US are working together to help breast cancer survivors feel beautiful again.

Dr. Regina Hampton and Jasmine Jones are set to open Cherry Blossom Intimates, a medical custom prosthetics and lingerie store for women with breast cancer.

Jones, the store's chief operating officer, said she decided to do something after losing her grandmother to breast cancer.

She said: “I remember her having to go and shop for prosthetic pieces that didn’t properly fit and only came in one color while store employees stuffed her behind a curtain to try them on."

She said in the end, her grandmother stopped wearing the prosthetic pieces because they didn't fit and no longer made her feel beautiful.
