We look forward to hosting our 4th annual Uplifting Event on March 27th at the beautiful DeSeversky Mansion in Old Westbury. This year's Uplifting Event will benefit BRA Day USA, an initiative designed to promote post-mastectomy breast reconstruction education, awareness and access. All contributions will be applied to The Plastic Surgery Foundation – Breast Reconstruction Awareness Fund, directly benefiting qualified programs for the purpose of supporting breast reconstruction-related research and awareness, and to non-profit medical organizations for the purpose of providing charitable care to breast reconstruction patients.
Having been a major participant in our patients’ breast reconstruction journey, we feel that The Uplifting Event marks an important stage in their recovery. This event was initiated four years ago and we were overwhelmed by the impact it had both on our patients and on us as their physicians. We are proud to sponsor The Uplifting Event, and others like it, in order to help foster patient self-esteem and wellness. The most valuable part of The Uplifting Event is that women have the opportunity to support other women who are going through the breast reconstruction process. At its core, this event is a celebration… by women for women.
Among the highlights of our last Uplifting Event were a number of surprise performances by our patients and staff! Of course, more surprise performances are in store for our upcoming event!
