One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer (National Cancer Institute). Post-breast cancer reconstructive surgery has tremendous impact in restoring a woman’s positive self-image and well being, but research reveals that 70% of women - who would have opted for reconstruction -still do not know their options. Harvard trained board certified plastic surgeon and Founder & CEO of RESTORE, Dr. Michael K. Obeng, seeks to help these patients through a unique initiative. Forever Femme is an extension of Breast Reconstruction Day (BRA-Day), in partnership with the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). 50% of the funds raised by Forever Femme will be applied to the Plastic Surgeons Breast Reconstruction Awareness Fund (501 c 3) to raise awareness about their reconstruction options, and the remainder will stay in our own community to help women in need of expenses for insurance deductibles and household expenses during their post-reconstruction recovery period.
