Cancer Rights

The Women’s Health and Cancer Rights Act (1998) requires insurance providers to cover all stages of breast reconstruction, including symmetry procedures for the contralateral breast.


30 for 3D

Your support will help us purchase a handheld 3D scanner to take 3D photographs of breast cancer patients.


Show us the pictures!

Our research found that almost all women considering breast reconstruction surgery want to see pictures of other women’s reconstruction outcomes, but only about half (55%) are shown pictures by their healthcare providers.
