This year Plastic Surgery Studios vowed to do it’s part to help spread the word about National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the dangers of breast cancer. From our in-house breast cancer awareness t-shirt competition, to our iEnhance exclusive interview with Sarah Budulica, a young woman who was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 15, we have put forth a continued effort to make people aware of this life-changing and oftentimes deadly disease both on and offline.
Last week we announced that we would be partnering with our New York City clients to help support Pink Pin. Pink Pin is an initiative set forth by Google and Susan G. Komen that was designed to connect New York City businesses and consumers who support breast cancer awareness with each other through an initiative website and map. Today the map was unveiled and we are excited to see our New York City doctors on the list. If that weren’t enough, a handful of our doctors went above and beyond and made a monetary donation to the cause as well. Dr. George Beraka, Dr. Sydney R. Coleman, and Dr. Alesia P. Saboeiro all made contributions to the effort and for that we are extremely grateful.
In addition, to be listed on PinkPin.com, patients of our New York City doctors can now make donations via text message from the doctors practice location. As stated on the Pink Pin website “Customers simply dial **PinkPin (**7465746) and reply ‘Yes’ to the text that appears on their phones, in order to donate $10 to Susan G. Komen.”
As National Breast Cancer Awareness Month winds down we still have a few efforts we’re working on. At noon today we will be announcing the winner of the staff breast cancer awareness t-shirt contest on Facebook. Additionally, we will feature a new Real Story on iEnhance.com that chronicles the triumphant and emotional story of Erika, a breast cancer survivor who is now working through the reconstruction phase and is hoping to have her new breasts by Christmas. We appreciate the efforts of everyone who has contributed to this months efforts and look forward to next years work, which is already in the planning stages. But remember, just because the commemorative month is ending, doesn’t mean you have to stop showing your support!
