Great Neck, NY (PRWEB) April 07, 2016
Breast cancer is too often synonymous with infinite physical and emotional turmoil, even for survivors. However, the breast reconstruction patients of NY Breast Reconstruction Associates/Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, PC have broken out of this proverbial confinement by harnessing the power of sisterhood support while undergoing reconstructive surgery from a uniquely skilled and caring group of plastic surgeons. Marking a significant milestone in their recovery and survival, hundreds of courageous women and men will be strutting their stuff on the red carpet and celebrating their lives during The Uplifting Event at Chateau Briand in Carle Place, N.Y. on Wednesday, 13 April, 2016.
The NY Breast Reconstruction Associates/Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, PC staff understand how much their patients and patients’ families have to sacrifice during their mastectomy and breast reconstruction journeys. Their courage has tremendous influence on the entire medical team. Admiring their strength and resolve, Drs. Randall Feingold, Ron Israeli, Peter Korn, David Light and Jonathan Bank have invited their patients to celebrate the gift of the present and uplift one another during a life-changing evening of sharing, singing, and dancing.
When Mollie Sugarman, Clinical Director of the group’s Patient Empowerment Program, launched The Uplifting Event six years ago, it had an overwhelming impact on both the patients and the entire medical team. It was a perfect combination of the physicians’ approach to caring for their breast reconstruction patients and the Patient-to-Patient Caring Teams celebrating each other. In fact, the NY Breast Reconstruction Associates are convinced that hosting events like this one and others are a crucial component to successful survival.
“We believe The Uplifting Event is something special for our patients; something they deserve after a long road to recovery,” said Randall Feingold, MD, managing partner of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, PC. “The celebration represents our medical practice’s dedication to ensuring our patients are healthy, happy and whole again.”
There will be raffles and a silent auction held during the event to raise funds for the Plastic Surgery Educational Foundation. More than $13,500 was raised for the Plastic Surgery Educational Foundation for patient education and services! Also sharing the evening with the patients will be New York’s best surgeons and oncologists who have been part of their breast cancer journey.
