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 17, 2019, Dr. Constance 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 already undergone surgery. Guests are invited to mingle, learn, and celebrate a woman's right to choose her own breast reconstruction journey.
At BRA Day 2019, we will host a Decorate-a-Bra contest to commemorate BRA Day USA. Submit a decorated bra to our contest for a chance to win prizes and gift baskets from our donors. Bras will also be available to decorate on site to raise money for Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day and Force: Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered, 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 guests will vote to choose the best bras. A Smashbox makeup artist will be on site for mini-makeovers. For ideas, check out photos from our past Decorate-a-Bra event here.
