A Public Awareness Grant of $9,000 was presented to The Live Today Foundation on May 8 during a Breast Reconstruction Awareness Fundraising Dinner in Chicago hosted by The Plastic Surgery Foundation. This grant was awarded to help bridge the public health needs of women suffering from lymphedema. The Live Today Foundation is a Chicago organization that provides fashionable compression garments that optimize lymphedema management in women with limited economic resources. Founder of Live Today, Sheri Prentiss, MD, MPH, CPS/A, CPE, FACPE, accepted the grant. Five months later, a play was produced and featured on the local ABC News affiliate.
