Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day
Surviving breast cancer can be a very emotional and trying experience. For the many survivors of breast cancer, survival is only the first step on becoming whole. A whole new fight begins when a woman has to come to terms with her post-mastectomy figure. Trying to find out what options are available while dealing with a variety of challenging emotions is no easy task. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons is on a mission to help!
On October 17, 2012, The American Society of Plastic Surgeons in conjunction with The Plastic Surgery foundation are launching the first ever Breast Reconstruction Awareness (BRA) day. The United States and 20 other countries are banding together to see that the survivors of breast cancer are aware of their options (currently as many as 70% of mastectomy survivors are uninformed according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons).
As part of the awareness campaign, renowned musical superstar and active breast cancer advocate Jewel will serve as the national spokesperson. Jewel has been a staunch supporter of breast cancer survivors for some time. In the coming weeks Jewel will be on a public awareness tour to spread the word about BRA day. Jewel has even written a song to recognize breast reconstruction patients and will perform a charitable concert to support the cause on October 29, 2012 in New Orleans. Having such an amazing talent and advocate behind BRA day helps to ensure that breast reconstruction awareness will reach the women who need it.
Breast reconstruction surgery is a procedure that speaks the core of Dr. Egrari’s philosophy that “beauty can buoy the spirit and enhance lives.” Helping a woman regain the figure she had prior to a fight with breast cancer is one of the most rewarding cosmetic procedures that Dr. Egrari has the privilege to be involved in. For so many women their breasts are a mark of their femininity. They are sexy, they help to define their womanly curves; they are a badge of their motherhood. A breast reconstruction surgery doesn’t just repair a damaged breast, but it can help start the healing process on a wounded soul.
