Breast Cancer Awareness Month:
SKINN's Mission to Transform Lives
October marks Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a time when communities worldwide unite in support, advocacy, and the shared hope of a world without breast cancer. This month, we at SKINN are proud to take a proactive step forward by partnering with Mission Plasticos in a heartfelt endeavor.
The Reality Many Face
Breast cancer, one of the most diagnosed cancers among women, poses not just a physical challenge but also an emotional and psychological ordeal. It becomes even more disheartening when we discover that a significant number of these brave fighters – around 60% of U.S. women with breast cancer living below the poverty line – are inadequately insured.This stark statistic means that many of these women may not have access to essential breast reconstructive surgery post-mastectomy. A reconstruction procedure, beyond its medical benefits, is symbolic. It stands for hope, healing, and the chance for survivors to feel whole again.
Our Pledge: A Full Journey of Care for Every Woman
Recognizing the pressing need, SKINN®, in partnership with Mission Plasticos, has taken a step forward. Mission Plasticos is committed to reshaping lives by providing essential surgical care to those in need. A percentage of our sales proceeds throughout this month will be dedicated to supporting their invaluable mission of offering no-cost breast reconstruction surgery for post-mastectomy women who lack adequate insurance coverage.
We firmly believe that every woman, irrespective of her economic situation, deserves a comprehensive journey of care. Our partnership is our commitment to ensuring that financial constraints do not become an additional burden for those already dealing with the physical and emotional scars of breast cancer.

It's a cause that requires collective effort. We encourage our community, readers, and supporters to get involved. You can make a difference by visiting reshapinglivesfullcircle.org to learn more about this initiative and find out how you can lend your support.
