After the often long road of mastectomy and reconstruction, empowered patients need to celebrate their victories. The seed for The Uplifting Event, was planted at a support group nearly seven years ago and has grown into a blockbuster event. In April 2016, Randall Feingold, MD, Ron Israeli, MD, Peter Korn, MD, and David Light, MD and Jonathan Bank, MD hosted their fifth Uplifting Event, a celebration of their patients. More than 330 breast reconstruction patients, along with their family and medical staff, commemorated significant milestones in their recovery journeys. Also sharing the evening were other surgeons and oncologists who have been integral in the patients’ breast cancer journey. The positive energy in the venue was overflowing. The event raised more than $14,000 for the Breast Reconstruction Awareness Fund, a program of The Plastic Surgery Foundation.
