Are you a Black, Latina, or Asian woman who has recently undergone breast reconstruction? We want to hear your story.

Black, Latina, and Asian women undergo breast reconstruction at half the rate of all women who have mastectomy. There are also important disparities in information delivery and in visual representation of minority women in clinical imagery of breast reconstruction outcomes.

For these and other reasons, there are important differences in the breast reconstruction experience among minority women that we want to explore in an upcoming video project.

If you'd like to share your story and help raise awareness of these important issues, please contact us by sending us a PM.
