NORTH ANDOVER — A Little Easier Recovery announces that it has received a grant from The Massachusetts Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure (Komen MA) in the amount of $39,989 to fund “The Jacki Program.”

A Little Easier Recovery, a nonprofit organization located at 43 High St., Suite 120, in North Andover, provides a recovery jacket called the “Jacki” that appears to be an everyday jacket when in reality, it aides cancer patients enduring treatment and recovery. The Jacki has necessary pocketing, Velcro seams, and sensitive fabric that allows for a full range of motion while keeping patients stylish and comfortable. Top hospitals provide the Jacki, free of charge, to all breast cancer patients. This is only possible through grants and donations to A Little Easier Recovery. The company donates directly to hospitals to distribute at the discretion of nurses and surgeons. Since its inception, over 8,900 Jacki recovery jackets have been given to patients as a gift, and the nonprofit aims to supply thousands more.
