"I'm so appreciative of what BRAVE has done" says Sue, "I'm happy to be a woman and to have the opportunity for breast restoration surgery."
SAN ANTONIO, TX, August 26, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- BRAVE is pleased to receive a substantial number of breast devices to help aid in reconstructive surgery for women without insurance coverage from Mentor, a leading supplier of breast implants in the global aesthetic market. The donation has allowed the foundation to facilitate breast reconstruction surgeries for women around the world through its partnerships with surgeons who provide the surgeries free of charge.
Ron Silverman, M.D. of the University of Maryland, with the donation from Mentor, successfully operated on a female patient who had waited over 16 years to have restorative breast surgery. "I'm so appreciative of what BRAVE has done" says Sue, "I'm happy to be a woman and to have the opportunity for breast restoration surgery."
BRAVE also donated products to surgeon Arthur Salibian, M.D., who works with ARMIN, the first charitable, non-governmental organization in Armenia where indigent women receive breast reconstructive services free of charge. "I am thankful for this partnership with BRAVE and for the support of Mentor," says Salibian.
BRAVE Coalition is dedicated to educating women about their right to breast restoration surgery following breast cancer treatment. One in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and only around 30% will be offered breast restoration rights and options. BRAVE's mission is to empower women with education and resources to give them the choices and opportunity to experience life beyond cancer as her whole self, however she defines it.
