Caption: In support of additional education to ensure all breast cancer patients are fully informed of their surgical options, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and The Plastic Surgery Foundation have partnered with renowned singer-songwriter, philanthropist and breast cancer advocate Jewel. In light of this legislation, Jewel has recorded a new television public service announcement advocating on behalf of those with breast cancer. The new PSA, released this week, encourages the public to contact their member of Congress in support of the "Breast Cancer Patient Education Act." Jewel has also written the song "Flower" honoring breast reconstruction patients. All proceeds of the song are donated to the Breast Reconstruction Awareness Fund of The PSF.
