CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- On Chicago's North Side, "We call ourselves a cancer recovery boutique, but we are primarily mastectomy," said Pattie Cagney Sheehan.

"Second Act" primarily provides breast prostheses breast forms, pocketed mastectomy bras, as well as wigs and compression garments.

Owner Pattie Cagney Sheehan said she has been doing this since 2008.

"It's my own independent business. I ran it by myself up until 2017 and then Jennifer Pritzker came in as my partner and with her financial backing I was able then to add an employee last year and move into this new space," Cagney Sheehan said.

This is the store's third location on Lincoln Avenue.

"I started in a room that was literally 8x10," Cagney Sheehan said.
