Event Location: Area restaurants

Plastic and reconstructive surgeons at WVU Medicine are partnering with local restaurants for Dine Out for Breast Reconstruction Awareness (BRA) Day on Wednesday, Oct. 18, to help raise awareness of breast reconstruction options available to women following breast cancer surgery.

Local restaurants participating in BRA Day will donate a percentage of their total receipts to a fund at WVU that is used for patient education and financial assistance for uninsured and underinsured women seeking breast reconstruction. Eighty percent of the proceeds will stay in the WVU fund to benefit women in West Virginia, and 20 percent will be donated directly to The Plastic Surgery Foundation’s Breast Reconstruction Awareness Fund.
