In conjunction with Breast Cancer Awareness Month, BHP is highlighting its bra collection drive. As always, We are requesting donations of both new and lightly used bras from anyone who has old or unwanted bras to donate. The bras will be recycled and then redistributed to women in need. Bra donors are invited to stop by during business hours at any of our nine Southern California locations, which are located in Beverly Hills, Encino, Lancaster, Oxnard, Pasadena, Rancho Cucamonga, Temecula, Thousand Oaks, and Valencia.
This year, the bra collection drive is also being held in cooperation with the breast reconstruction awareness campaign being sponsored by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and The Plastic Surgery Foundation. BHP has a page devoted to the bra drive on the campaign’s web site and we enthusiastically support the campaign. Its goal is “to inform women of their breast reconstruction options following a mastectomy or lumpectomy.”
It’s worth noting that BHP offers post-breast cancer reconstruction surgery. Of course, every woman is different and some may not want this type of procedure, while others may not be candidates for one or more health reasons. However, many women may feel a void following a procedure and breast prosthetics are often not sufficient to ensure they look and feel their very best. Therefore, post-surgical reconstructive procedures – which are legally required to be covered by health insurance — are often the best way to address the situation.
If you are interested in participating in the bra drive, or in obtaining a reconstructive procedure, we’d love to hear from at 800-788-1416. If you’re interested in a procedure, you can also reach virtually and request a consultation.
