BRA Day Usa

BRA Day USA is observed on the third Wednesday in October and is part of the breast cancer campaign to bring attention to the options women have after having a lumpectomy or mastectomy. Whether a woman decides to reconstruct her breast following a mastectomy can be a difficult decision, and this day is designed to make women aware of some of their options. This day can also be used to give support to someone going through breast cancer treatment or who is making the decision for their next steps after a mastectomy.

The History of BRA Day USA

BRA Day was first created in 2011 by Doctor Mitchell Brown. Dr. Brown, a Canadian plastic surgeon, wanted to highlight the choices that women face following cancer treatment. The following year, the event was expanded to the United States, and BRA Day USA was founded.
