With Breast Cancer Awareness Month in full swing, Grammy Award-winning artist Jewel, dedicated her new single “Flower” to support the cause of Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day.
Today, KSTP got to talk to Jewel about Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day, also known as “BRA Day USA”.
About 7 out of 10 women don’t know what their reconstruction options are if they are diagnosed with breast cancer.
The reason it is important is so that women don’t go into the mastectomy with an educated opinion of what you would like, it could affect options later.
To get informed, Jewel said to visit bradayusa.org and at 11 a.m. in St. Cloud there will be exhibits to show people what their options are.
