This was the fourth "Uplifting Event" sponsored by Drs. Feingold, Israeli, Korn, and Light as a celebration of their patients. It is a magical evening that is inspiring and is often life changing for the participants. This was the first year that the Spouses who participate in our Men's Support Group were included. It is important to acknowledge their role in the restoration process and their commitment to their partners.
All of the practice physicians, PAs, Clinical Director of the Patient Empowerment Program, Surgical Coordinator and patients were involved in various aspects of the program including the entertainment section. Fourteen women modeled, women were scheduled for fitting with a certified post mastectomy fitter, original poetry was presented, and a raffle held to benefit the Breast Reconstruction Awareness Fund raised close to $13,000.
It was inspiring for all!
