Plastic Surgery & Skin Specialists by BayCare Clinic® will host the 8th annual BRAs of the Bay event Thursday, October 13, 2022 at the Resch Expo, 840 Armed Forces Dr in Ashwaubenon.
Federal law mandates coverage of breast reconstruction surgery for most breast cancer patients, even if reconstruction is delayed until after cancer treatment is completed.
Undergoing breast reconstruction can have profound physical and emotional benefits for women. It can help enhance their confidence and self-image after a mastectomy.
Our goal with this event is to help close the loop on breast cancer and raise awareness of the breast reconstruction rights of breast cancer survivors. Attendees can learn more about breast reconstruction rights, enjoy entertainment, hors d’oeuvres, a cash bar and a silent auction.
Tickets to the event are $20 and donations are being collected to help support the cause.
BRAs of the Bay is part of a national effort sponsored by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and The Plastic Surgery Foundation. National Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day (BRA Day) is Wednesday, October 19, 2022.
It’s mission statement:
Breast reconstruction following a mastectomy or lumpectomy is not for every woman, but every woman should be informed of the options to which she is legally entitled. National BRA Day helps raise awareness and close the loop on breast cancer.
Proceeds from BRAs of the Bay, with additional support from the BayCare Clinic Foundation, the Plastic Surgery Foundation, and Plastic Surgery & Skin Specialists by BayCare Clinic, will benefit the Ribbon of Hope Foundation and the national Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day initiative.
Money donated to the Ribbon of Hope Foundation stays in the community to help provide emotional, financial, and educational support to breast cancer patients in Brown and Kewaunee counties.
