What happens when two renowned plastic surgeons recently honored by the American Cancer Society as the 2007 Physicians of Distinction, cross paths with Beth Silverman, a passionate young survivor that dreams of making a difference in the fight against breast cancer? “Something magical,” says Beth, the executive director for the newly launched web resource  “During my own cancer journey, I struggled with decisions about reconstruction. I had a hard time finding the information I needed, and was frightened by images I found on various websites. As an active member of the cancer community, I came across hundreds of women experiencing the same confusion and frustration.  I knew something had to be done, so I reached out to two surgeons whose dedication to breast reconstruction goes far beyond their surgical practice.”

            After a year of development, opened its cyber doors to the world in October.  Their mission is to offer a comprehensive website for women making decisions about reconstruction, while providing the most up-to-date information on surgical advances, and a safe environment where women can connect with each other.  Covering a broad range of reconstruction topics, the site covers everything from types of reconstruction, to tips on preparing for surgery.  Users can find the latest information in the research news section, or share the experience and photos of other women in the personal stories section.  The site offers discussion boards, and in early 2008 live chats will be held monthly.

   is just getting started.  The future holds exciting additions for the website. Look for their booth in February at the YSC/LBBC conference, or email for brochures and other information.
