Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day is a campaign designed to put an end to the unknown by promoting public education, patient care and research. The sixth annual Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day takes place October 18.

Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day is a collaborative effort between the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), The Plastic Surgery Foundation (The PSF), plastic surgeons specializing in breast surgery, nurse navigators, corporate partners, breast cancer support groups and organizations.

These organizations and breast cancer patients, along with their families and friends, coordinate events on the special day that include media events, question and answer sessions, lectures, flash mobs, fundraising parties, advertising campaigns, community events and more.

The Diamond Sponsor of this year’s BRA Day is Mentor, a leading supplier of medical products for the global aesthetic medicine market. The company has made breast implant devices for more than 30 years.
