In the spirit of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) Surgery Department’s Division of Plastic Surgery took the initiative to raise awareness and celebrate on October 18th. This meaningful occasion saw a series of events spread across UTMB's Galveston Campus, League City Campus, and Clear Lake Campus.  

Breast cancer is a critical health concern affecting countless individuals worldwide, and it's vital to highlight the importance of early detection, prevention, and treatment. UTMB reconstructive surgeons recognized the significance of this month on Breast Reconstruction Awareness (BRA) Day this year and hosted a series of informative and engaging events to help spread awareness.  

In collaboration with the Galveston Daily News, UTMB presented a selection of articles addressing various aspects of breast cancer awareness. These articles offer valuable insights and information that can aid in better understanding the disease and encourage proactive steps for prevention and early detection.  

As we conclude Breast Cancer Awareness Month, it is imperative to remember that raising awareness is a year-round effort. By promoting knowledge, encouraging regular check-ups, and supporting those affected, we can collectively contribute to the fight against breast cancer.
