BRAVE Coalition Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit breast restoration rights awareness foundation, announces a new initiative with Recovery Care Products (RCP) to provide breast reconstruction patients and the community the resources to aid in their recovery process.

RCP offers professional-grade healing essentials to support the recovery process after surgical breast reconstruction. With its surgical care package specially created for patients recovering from breast surgery, the affiliation connects the dots between advocacy for women’s rights post breast cancer and the critical need for quality, safe and effective recovery care, BRAVE Coalition Foundation notes in a media release.

“As a surgeon, I focus on the surgical journey of breast reconstruction, and making sure the body is made whole. But the recovery is such an important piece of the process. An affiliation of this nature creates a trifecta of impact for BRAVE; the doc/surgeon relationship, advocacy, and recovery.”

— Regina M. Fearmonti, MD, Alon Aesthetics Plastic Surgery

As an affiliate of RCP, the breast reconstruction community will be able to purchase Recovery Care Products through the BRAVE Coalition website at a discounted price, and RCP will donate 30% of the proceeds of every breast surgical care box back to BRAVE Coalition.

The breast surgical care box is ideal for any type of breast procedure and includes pre- and post-operative essentials. And they now include an EZBra, a sterile, disposable, and feminine post-surgical bra.

“At BRAVE, we believe it is our calling to share valuable resource connections, like Recovery Care Products and EZbra, who are working to help breast cancer patients on the other side of cancer. This why BRAVE has decided, to join hands with Recovery Care Products, as our first ever affiliation partnership. We are excited to be able to connect our community with a company which provides a product line which are relevant and meaningful to their journey.”

— Christine Grogan, Founder of BRAVE Coalition

BRAVE Coalition is dedicated to educating women about their right to breast restoration surgery following breast cancer treatment. One in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer, and only around 30% will be offered breast restoration rights and options. BRAVE’s mission is to empower women with education and resources to give them the choices and opportunity to experience life beyond cancer as her whole self, however she defines it, per the release.
