In 1998, a federal law went into place that provides protections to patients who choose to have breast reconstruction in connection with a mastectomy. Even though the Women's Health and Cancer Rights Act (WHCRA) has been around for nearly 20 years, we are contacted far too often by women wishing they had the choice to reconstruct, or knew that they even had the option following their mastectomy. We always advocate that breast reconstruction is a personal choice. It's your body, and it's your decision, but we all deserve to know more about our options.
