The first Breast Surgeon to be Appointed to the BRAVE Medical Advisory Board
SAN ANTONIO, TX, February 1, 2024 — BRAVE® Coalition Foundation, the first 501(c)3 organization to promote education and awareness of resources for breast cancer survivors regarding breast reconstruction options, is pleased to announce the appointment of Toni Storm, MD to the BRAVE Medical Advisory Board.
Toni Storm, MD is the first breast surgeon to be appointed to the BRAVE Medical Advisory Board. Dr. Storm is the co-Director of Compass Breast clinic and Director – Multidisciplinary Breast Clinic and serves on the Board of Directors of the Pink Lemonade organization. She received her Doctor of Medicine degree at University of Iowa, completed her Surgical Residency at Akron General Medical Centre and has a Bachelor of Science in Microbiology and Immunology from Oregon State University.
Dr. Storm will bring a new perspective to the BRAVE Medical Advisory Board. She works closely with many plastic surgeons, including Dr. Allen Gabriel, a co-founder of BRAVE Coalition Foundation, to deliver better reconstruction results for breast cancer patients seeking breast reconstruction.
“We are very excited to have Dr. Storm join our Medical Advisory Board,” said Christine Grogan, Founder of BRAVE Coalition Foundation. “Every breast cancer reconstruction journey includes a breast surgeon, and better patient reconstruction outcomes are seen when a team approach, including the breast surgeon and the plastic surgeon, is implemented from the beginning.”
