Breast Reconstruction Awareness (BRA) Day was organized as a day to educate all women of their breast reconstruction options following a mastectomy or lumpectomy.
On October 19, 2017, Dr. Constance M. Chen, her staff and her patients, the BosomBuddies, will host a #BRADay event to educate the public about the latest breast reconstruction options, including fixing problems after unhappy reconstructions and restoring sensation to breasts after mastectomies. Multidisciplinary healthcare practitioners will be available for questions. A private Show and Tell room will offer women who are contemplating mastectomy or breast reconstruction the opportunity to meet and connect in person with women who have had these procedures. Guests are invited to mingle, learn, and celebrate a woman's right to choose her own breast reconstruction journey.
We are also launching a Decorate-a-Bra campaign to commemorate BRA Day. All are invited to decorate a bra for breast reconstruction awareness. The bras will be used to raise money for BRA Day USA and Force: 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. Decorated bras will be displayed at the event, and there will be a Smashbox makeup artist on site for mini-makeovers.
