BRA Day SA - Join us!

Posted Sep 06 2012 4:46pm
I have to say, it's about time. Finally, there is a national push to increase awareness about breast reconstruction.

For years I have had to console ladies who were upset they weren't offered reconstruction at the time of their mastectomy. To this day, 70% of women facing mastectomy for breast cancer are not informed about their reconstructive options. Many have lived for years without a breast only to find out much later that they could have avoided the psychological and social impact of living without a breast altogether.

Now, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) is trying to change that terrible statistic with a national Breast Reconstruction Awareness campaign centered around "BRA day" on October 17th.
Thank you ASPS!
We'll be doing our utmost to help out... PRMA will be hosting the first ever " BRA Day SA " on October 17th at the Witte Museum. It's going to be a phenomenal event full of fun, food, and of course the latest info on breast reconstruction. 
Admission is free and all proceeds will go to WINGS , a 501(C)(3) charity which provides comprehensive breast cancer treatment services to uninsured women in Texas. 
Please join us!  More details here .
Hope to see you there!
