The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS)and The Plastic Surgery Foundation ( PSF) are supporting the first national Breast Reconstruction Awareness (BRA) Day USA on October 17, 2012. With a goal of raising awareness of breast reconstruction options following mastectomy, plastic surgeons throughout the United States will work with patient groups and other organizations to educate their communities and patients. Surprisingly, as many as 7 out of 10 women treated for breast cancer are never told about their reconstruction options.
