Dine Out for BRA Day #TheBraDay
Dine Out for Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day- Wednesday, October 18th 2017
We are hosting a Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day event in honor of all the strong and passionate women that have endured being diagnosed with breast cancer. All women deserve to know their breast reconstruction options in order to successfully battle and hopefully close the loop that is breast cancer. That is why we are here!
The Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons of WVU Medicine invite you to participate in Dine Out for BRA Day.
BRA Day is a nationwide initiative that began in 2012. This year it is being recognized on Wednesday, October 18th.
Dine Out is a benefit night where a percentage of the night’s receipts will go to support BRA Day. Dine out is a terrific way to show your support for local women and families while enjoying breakfast, lunch or dinner at your favorite participating restaurant.
Breast cancer surgery often results in a significant alteration to a woman’s breast(s) and can have severe quality of life consequences, making an impact physically and psychologically. Most women facing mastectomy don’t know that by law, health insurance plans that offer mastectomy coverage must also provide coverage for reconstructive surgery after mastectomy.
Funds raised during this benefit will be used to provide assistance, such as medication costs, transportation and other supportive services, to uninsured and underinsured women seeking breast reconstruction.
A variety of restaurants in the Morgantown area will be participating in our even this year and donating a portion of their total receipts to our benefit fund! Follow our Twitter or Facebook pages for an updated list of participating establishments.
