BRA (Breast Reconstruction Awareness) Day is an initiative that promotes education, awareness and access for women considering post-mastectomy breast reconstruction.
At a BRA Day event, leading plastic surgeons provide breast reconstruction education and are available to answer your questions. Attendees will be able to hear patient stories and connect with women who have been through it. The highlight of a BRA Day event is the Show & Tell Lounge, an innovative space where volunteers show attendees the real-life results of their breast reconstruction.
BRA Day events are held in communities across Canada in October. Click the Find an Event button below to register today.
