Reshaping Lives CA - Access to Surgical Solutions

Reshaping Lives CA - Access to Surgical Solutions

There is a common misconception that in the United States, surgery is accessible to everyone. However, each year in our community, thousands of men, women and children are unable to receive life-changing surgical care, for many reasons including:

  • Unstable housing
  • Lack of health insurance Inadequate health insurance Ineligibility for publicly sponsored programs
  • Exhaustion of government sponsored programs

Plasticos Foundation’s community-based humanitarian program, Reshaping Lives California strives to fill the gap by performing reconstructive surgery on select local patients, free of charge.

On October 1, 2018, the first day of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Plasticos Foundation will launch a month long digital informational campaign, detailing the shocking number of women in the US without access to post-mastectomy breast reconstruction, the reasons for the gap in service and the free of charge surgical solutions available through Plasticos Foundation.
