I’m on a mission to put BRA Day (Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day) on the map!
In 2019 I had a DIEP flap reconstruction, when tissue was taken from my abdomen and used to reconstruct my breast.
Hearing about my reconstruction options after my of breast cancer diagnosis gave me hope that I could be ‘me’ again after my treatment.
I want sisters, mothers, daughters, granddaughters – women like me – who are facing the difficult decision to have a mastectomy to know that there are reconstruction options that they can talk to their team about, so that they can make an informed decision about what's right for them.
Walks around Sydney Harbour helped me recover from my surgeries, and I’ve brought together my love of walking with my passion for awareness raising to devise BRA-va Art - making Strava ‘art’ while exercising - to draw attention to BRA Day!
That's it! No fund-rasing, just fun raising.
On your marks ... get set to make BRA-va art!
