Black Entrepreneurs to Open Store for Breast Cancer Survivors | The Washington Informer Breast cancer survivors across the region will no longer have to travel far to feel beautiful.



Cherry Blossom Intimates, the first medical custom prosthetics and lingerie store for women with breast cancer within the D.C. area, is set to open a location in Prince George’s County.

Jasmine Jones, chief operating officer for Cherry Blossom Intimates and former Miss Black D.C., said the store will not only help those with breast cancer but women all over.

“I lost my grandmother to breast cancer my sophomore year in college,” Jones 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.
