"Awareness of breast reconstruction options while undergoing breast cancer treatment changes a woman's outlook on the whole process," said Regina Fearmonti, MD, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
SAN ANTONIO, TX, March 14, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- March 21, 2018 Breast Restoration AdVocacy and Education (BRAVE) Coalition Foundation is recognizing their 5th annual "BRAVE Day" locally and nationally in multiple locations across the United States. BRAVE seeks to empower women through educating them of their rights to reconstruction when diagnosed with Breast Cancer. BRAVE is about restoring the whole woman after the diagnosis, and is one of few charities that focuses on after the diagnosis. "We call it restoration since the end result is women restored to their best self, however they choose." - Christine Grogan, MHA/EMHL, Founder.
March 21st is National Breast "Restoration" Day - a day that we encourage everyone to spread the word that women have the right to reconstruction after breast cancer treatment. Although 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer, only 30% of those diagnosed know their federally mandated right to reconstruction. For breast cancer survivors to thrive, BRAVE Coalition promotes that all survivors should be empowered with education and resources to give them the choice and opportunity to experience life beyond cancer as her whole self, however she defines it.
"Awareness of breast reconstruction options while undergoing breast cancer treatment changes a woman's outlook on the whole process," said Regina Fearmonti, MD, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. "While some women may opt to delay their reconstruction until cancer treatment is completed, knowing that there are options to rebuild their breasts and lives after breast cancer does serve as a light at the end of the tunnel. Every woman deserves to participate in that discussion."
BRAVE Day will be celebrated nationally and locally at multiple locations across the United States, thanks in part to the generous support provided by Allergan & Sientra. To find a BRAVE Celebration near you, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
