ASPS staff show support for BRA Day
While Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day (BRA Day) was being observed Oct. 17 in New Orleans, New York and the rest of the United States and around the globe, ASPS Executive Office staff members in Arlington Heights, Ill., demonstrated their desire to get into the spirit with BRA Day-related clothing, pink foods and other accoutrements that stood in support of the effort to bring post-mastectomy reconstructions to women who may not be aware of them.
ASPS department areas were adorned with visual signs of support, including balloons, ribbons, streamers and signs. BRA Day-themed T-shirts were also on display, including one that read "Treasure My Chest" in pink lettering accompanied by the image of a pirate's treasure chest and a pink Breast Cancer Awareness ribbon. Staffers at the ASPS office also wore BRA Day ribbons as a show of support.
Even the building exterior was brought into the celebration, with "BRA Day USA" signs lining the street outside the building that were easily readable by passing motorists.
Near the end of BRA Day, ASPS staffers gathered at the front of 444 E. Algonquin Road for a group photo, in order to show off their support breast reconstruction awareness.
