Breast Cancer Reconstruction Awareness Day will be geared towards patients and healthcare providers and will encompass providing educational materials via informational pamphlets and question-and-answer sessions with breast reconstruction providers. In addition, there will be targeted marketing that will be focused on patients who have undergone prior breast cancer treatments in order to increase turnout and awareness of breast reconstruction treatment options.
Patients who have undergone breast reconstruction will have the option of having their hair and makeup done and will wear an outfit, donated by local boutiques for the day, and walk down the runway. During their runway walk, a short bio prepared by them will be read describing their journey with breast cancer and breast reconstruction.
Six plastic surgeons will speak to the attendees regarding breast reconstruction, and food and beverages will be served.
