San Antonio, TX, September 16, 2022 —
The BRAVE® Coalition Foundation celebrates the tenth anniversary of Brave Week, September 11-16, 2022. The event recognizes the challenges experienced by breast cancer survivors and creates awareness of the resources provided by the Brave Coalition Foundation. This year’s activities are sponsored by Mentor Worldwide, LLC., a global leader in breast aesthetics and part of Johnson & Johnson MedTech.
During BRAVE week, the company will unveil its newly designed website by QooQoo Communications, with robust resources for patients, care givers, and plastic surgeons. The weeklong activities include webinars with plastic surgeons and patients that can be viewed on the company’s social media channels and the new website.
“BRAVE is honored to bring breast cancer survivors the resources and support they need during a life-changing time in their lives. We are so appreciative that Mentor continues to be our partner along this much needed path to bringing women education and options during their breast cancer survivorship journey. This donation will allow BRAVE Coalition to empower women with the knowledge they need to choose the right option for their individual and unique journey to full recovery from breast cancer,” said Christine Grogan DHA, Founder and President of BRAVE® Coalition Foundation.
One in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and only around 30% are aware of breast restoration rights and options, based on research. Sadly, even a higher percentage exists around women of color, lower socioeconomic status and lower education. BRAVE’s mission is to empower women with education and resources to provide choices and opportunities to experience life beyond cancer as her whole self, however she defines it.
BRAVE is committed to restoring life that is brimming with confidence & hope for every BRAVE Breast Cancer Survivor. By addressing the root causes of obstacles in the care system; providing accessible & relevant EDUCATION; and UNITING each survivor to a BRAVE surgeon & other life enhancing resources, BRAVE Coalition promises to relentlessly ADVOCATE for all BRAVE breast cancer survivors. BRAVE is dedicated to educating women about their right to breast restoration surgery following breast cancer treatment.
