For the month of October, Fairfield Medical Center and Central Ohio Plastic Surgery, Inc. co-sponsored a bra drive for a local women's shelter, specifically to raise awareness for National BRA (Breast Reconstruction Awareness) Day, which is today!

BRA Day, organized by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and The Plastic Surgery Foundation (PSF), serves to ensure that all breast cancer patients are informed on their reconstruction options and are supported by a team of medical professionals working together for the patient's best interest.

Today, Fairfield Medical Center and Central Ohio Plastic Surgery, Inc. delivered the bras collected in the drive to a local women's shelter. Check out a wonderful behind the scenes picture below!
