FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – February 26, 2021
BRCAStrong is excited to announce Dr. Lisa J. Learn as a 2021 Bronze sponsor. Dr. Learn’s sponsorship of BRCAStrong will supply 10 previvors, survivors and thrivers with much needed support as they battle breast cancer, ovarian cancer and/or hereditary cancer dispositions.
“I am delighted to support BRCA Strong for the second year in their efforts to provide awareness and support to those facing the challenges of a BRCA diagnosis and breast cancer,” said Dr. Lisa Learn. “Through their work, patients have the best opportunity to feel whole again.”
Founded by Tracy Milgram-Posner in 2015 after being told that she carries the BRCA2 mutation, BRCAStrong started out with a main focus on helping women with BRCA1 and BRCA2 genetic mutations. Over the years, BRCAStrong has evolved into a sisterhood of Previvors, Thrivers and Survivors that offers education, information, support and advocacy for women who are uninsured or under insured, by women who care. Support comes in all forms, from post-mastectomy garments and prosthetics, to lymphedema sleeves and other treatment necessities; and is provided at zero cost to recipients.
“I think we all experience some level of self-doubt and physical insecurities after breast or reproductive surgery and/or treatment – regardless of BRCA involvement,” said Tracy. “In a way, BRCA2 took away my womanhood – and there are too many more women out there facing challenges similar to mine. Having someone involved with our group who has experienced what we’re all going through is a powerful statement to the women who are fighting day in and day out. We are so appreciative of Dr. Learn’s dedication to our cause for the second year and hope to continue the relationship into the future!”
BRCAStrong is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization aimed at supporting women who have been touched by breast and/or ovarian cancer. From financial support to routine monitoring or preventative surgery, BRCAStrong helps Previvors, Thrivers, and Survivors through the journey toward health, positive self-image and inspired living. Dr. Learn is board-certified in plastic surgery and specializes in a broad scope of surgical and non-surgical treatments for the face and body, including aesthetic and reconstructive breast surgery. She has received accolades for her distinctive approach to plastic surgery, where medical skill and an artistic eye meet the insight and sensitivity of a woman’s perspective.
