Grab your girlfriends and get ready to dance for a cause! On Wednesday, October 15th, Miami Plastic Surgery and Body & Soul invite you to dance for awareness at A BRA Day VideoSync Fundraiser. The high energy, fitness dance class will allow participants to shake and move in support of Breast Reconstruction Awareness. The VideoSync Fundraiser will take place at Body & Soul, located at 3183 SW 38th Court in Coral Gables at 6:30 pm.
Breast Reconstruction Awareness (BRA) Day is an initiative designed to promote education, awareness and access regarding post-mastectomy breast reconstruction. BRA Day was first launched in 2011 in Canada and now will occur annually on the third Wednesday of October.
“We have a major lack in public knowledge and education regarding breast reconstruction,” says Dr. Johnny Franco, a breast reconstruction specialist Miami Plastic Surgery. “Seven out of ten women diagnosed with breast cancer are not aware of their options. BRA Day is a way for us to reach the community and share all the options in breast reconstruction.”
Adds VideoSync creator, J. Marcos, “Post breast cancer reconstruction is about helping women restore a positive self-image, which is something I try to instill in my classes every day. I want to teach the world to dance, rinse and repeat… J. Marcos style If even, for just one hour, I can help women feel better about themselves, I know I’ve done my job.”
Admission for the BRA Day VideoSync Fundraiser is $20. All proceeds will benefit The Breast Reconstruction Awareness Fund of the Plastic Surgery Foundation. To register, please call 305.441.BFIT (2348) or for more information on the event and breast reconstruction, visit www.miamiplasticsurgery.com.
