I LOVE Jewel’s Voice — And I Love Her Message In This Video! She Is A Beautiful Person Inside And Out!

Did you know that only 7 out of 10 women are told their reconstruction options? That is unacceptable! Reconstruction can be a significant aspect of your healing, and all women are entitled to know their options.

In the following PSA, singer/songwriter Jewel urges you to share this sobering statistic with others, and also sings part of her song “Flower”, which she wrote to raise awareness of this issue. Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day (aptly called Bra Day) is held every year on October 15th in the hopes that one day every woman will know all the options available to her.

Watch the video to learn more!

(If you think that doctors should be required by law to give patients all of their breast cancer reconstruction options before surgery, sign the petition Let Women Know Their Options After A Breast Cancer Diagnosis!)
