Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day, or BRA Day, is celebrated each year in October to educate and create awareness for post-mastectomy breast reconstruction. This year, BRA Day will be celebrated on Oct. 16.

BRA Day is organized by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, The Plastic Surgery Foundation and breast cancer centers and support groups.

This year, BRA Day will be focused on the “Team Approach” to breast cancer care, sending the message that all breast cancer doctors should work together to better benefit the patient.
