Breast Reconstruction Awareness (BRA) Day was organized as a day to educate all women of their breast reconstruction options following a mastectomy or lumpectomy. This year, Dr. Constance M. Chen, her staff, and her patients, the #BosomBuddies, are launching a Decorate-a-Bra campaign to commemorate BRA Day. All are invited to decorate a bra to raise money for breast reconstruction awareness. The bras will be used to raise money for Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered (FORCE), whose mission is to improve the lives of individuals and families affected by hereditary breast, ovarian, and related cancers.
On October 19, 2017, Dr Chen and the #BosomBuddies will host a BRA Day event in New York City to educate the public about breast reconstruction options, including fixing problems after unhappy reconstructions, restoring sensation to breasts after mastectomies. The decorated bras will be displayed at the event, and there will be a SmashBox makeup artist on site for mini-makeovers. Participants will vote on the best decorated bras.
