Datin Etty Zainab Ibrahim has taken over ownership of Amanita Services Sdn Bhd since February 2009. She is continuing the wonderful work that Dee started in helping the women of Malaysia who have breast cancer and who need breast prostheses.

 

How We Started


Founders
Dee Sidhu, the founder of Amanita, had a bilateral mastectomy for breast cancer in 2001. She is married to a Malaysian and has two daughters. Dee is a dietitian, aromatherapist and masseur. Dee worked for the National Cancer Society of Malaysia for two years from 2002 to 2004 as their Project Director. She is a member of The Malaysian Dietitians Association and The Nutrition Society of Malaysia. Dee is a certified breast prosthesis and bra fitter.

She commutes between Australia and Malaysia and welcomes appointments for fittings, nutrition advice or just to share how she managed her journey with cancer. Dee is also available to talk to women’s groups, medical professionals or any other organisation or community about the issues women confront when faced with a life threatening illness.

Mary Anderson, the co-founder of Amanita, has worked with women in crisis for many years. She is a trained counsellor and has established support groups at the National Cancer Society of Malaysia. She is married with three sons.

Dee writes “anyone meeting Mary for the first time will leave with their heavy spirit lifted and with hope in their heart.”

“Amanita is very sad to announce that Mary has retired after 2 wonderful years. We miss her and wish her lots of happiness.”
