About BRA Day
Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day is an initiative that promotes education, awareness and access for women who may wish to consider breast reconstruction after mastectomy.
The collaborative effort involves plastic surgeons specializing in breast surgery who are members of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, The Plastic Surgery Foundation, plastic surgery nurse specialists, the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, Canadian Society of Plastic Surgeons, medical device industry representatives and breast cancer support groups. The United States and 20 other countries will join this year’s international effort to increase awareness for breast reconstruction options after mastectomy.
