Breast Reconstruction Awareness Campaign
The Breast Reconstruction Awareness Campaign is sponsored by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and The Plastic Surgery Foundation (The PSF), and financially supported through corporations, institutions, private practices and individuals.
Its intent is simple: Educate, engage and empower women to make the decision that is best for them following a diagnosis with breast cancer. That involves informing women, family members, caregivers and the media that the breast cancer loop remains open until a woman is informed of all her breast reconstruction options.
Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day is an awareness campaign designed to promote public education, patient care and research. It was first launched in 2011 in Canada and now occurs annually in October. This important initiative is a collaborative effort between the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, The Plastic Surgery Foundation, plastic surgeons specializing in breast surgery, nurse navigators, corporate partners and breast cancer support groups. These organizations and breast cancer patients, along with their families and friends, raise their voices on Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day by coordinating media events, question and answer sessions, lectures, flash mobs, fundraising parties, advertising campaigns and community events.
The campaign is multi-faceted and includes broad-reaching communication efforts to inform the public. Through national and local events, programming and a mix of traditional and new media efforts, millions of people have been informed of breast reconstruction options following mastectomy.
