“It’s important for women to have this kind of forum to hear from patients as well as physicians,” Jennings said. “Breast reconstruction surgery really does help women regain that sense of self that might have been compromised during the treatment phase of breast cancer.”

BRA Day is an initiative designed to promote education, awareness, and access regarding post-mastectomy breast reconstruction. It occurs annually in October and is a collaborative effort between the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, The Plastic Surgery Foundation, plastic surgeons, breast centers, nurse navigators, corporate sponsors, and breast cancer support groups.
