The Billow pillow

The Story

Marnie is a former Wall Street professional, thyroid cancer survivor and breast cancer previvor.  Breast cancer is particularly close to Marnie’s heart as her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 40 and she and her mother both carry the BRCA gene mutation. In August 2013 Marnie had a preventative double mastectomy and subsequent reconstructive surgeries to decrease her risk of getting breast cancer. Through her own experience, she realized that other patients needed relief and to regain confidence again post surgery.

Marnie designed the Billow (breast+pillow) to provide comfort and support to women with breast discomfort resulting from surgery, nursing or breast size.  Her company Billow Global, Inc. has been providing this much needed product to patients worldwide.

Marnie is passionate about building beauty and confidence in patients and understands the importance of feeling whole again after such an emotional and demanding journey.  She started Medi Ink, LLC to bring 3D nipple/areola restoration and scar camouflage services to patients.  She absolutely loves seeing them shine again following their procedures.

Marnie is certified in 3D nipple/areola micro-pigmentation and scar camouflage from the Sauler Institute at Penn Medicine and licensed in many states.  She is a member of ISFOE, S4OM, SIO and GSN and is sitting for the SPCP exam in fall 2018.
