If you receive a call from your doctor saying you should consider a mastectomy, to remove a cancerous breast or to prevent the possibility of breast cancer, it can leave you feeling shocked and overwhelmed. Beyond the trauma of receiving a mastectomy recommendation, there are several different options for mastectomies.
Every October, the AiRS Foundation participates in Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This time of the year is specially set apart to raise awareness about the disease. Of course, most people know about breast cancer. But many people do not know about the specifics of the disease.
Breast Reconstruction Awareness (BRA) Day is an national initiative designed to promote education, awareness and access for women who may want to consider post-mastectomy breast reconstruction.
