Comfy Breasts with Michael C. Riley
Michael C. Riley calls himself "MacGyver" because he likes to fix things. When he was talking to a cancer survivor about how uncomfortable it was for her to sleep on her stomach after a double mastectomy, the idea for Comfy Breasts was born. Michael wants all breast cancer survivors to know about comfy breasts, which are able to be customized for each individual. They are great for massage therapists, too! Anyone who has had surgery or just is uncomfortable sleeping on their stomach should check out this all new podcast available on demand now!
How did you come up with the idea? I was talking to a lady over a year ago, who had undergone double mastectomy surgery, and she was very upset about how much pain in her chest she had from the surgery, and could no longer sleep on her stomach, so I decided to solve the problem for all breast cancer survivors...thus ComfyBreasts came about a year later.
What has the feedback been like? The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, and most are stunned how simple the idea, and that nobody has ever thought of it before!
Do you have any future plans for products moving forward? I have 2 other great ideas, about products I have not had the time or money to put together so far, one to make it safer for everyone on the road, while driving, and another is a women's clothing line that will change the way women deal with going out after work! They are both very secretive at this time, but I do expect to get around to them in good time, in the near future!
How old are you and where do you live? I am 50 years old, and I live in San Diego, CA, with my 3 yellow labs, Precious, the Mother, and her two 2 year old puppies, Missy & Buddy.
Where are you from (and now currently living in)? I was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and moved to Scottsdale, AZ when I was 6 weeks old. I lived in Scottsdale until I was about 37 and then moved to San Diego, via a couple of other states.
