Lurie Children’s Gender Program has a chest binder exchange. If you have old chest binders that you are no longer using please consider donating them!
Please note we are not able to mail binders
You can drop them off or mail them to: Lurie Children’s Administrative Office c/o Janay Joyce-Ward 1440 N. Dayton Street, 3rd Floor Chicago, IL 60642
If you need a binder please take one from the exchange! They are at the front desk, simply ask to see the binders and take one with you today. If you have questions, please e-mail JJoyceWard@luriechildrens.org.
One Lurie Children’s patient shares their experience with chest binders in a touching tribute:
