Dr. Merrick Lights Phoenix Park Bridge Pink for Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day! - As seen on WEAU
On October 17, 2018, Dr. Merrick sponsored lighting of the Phoenix Park Bridge for Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day! The bridge projected pink for all of Eau Claire to see, to continue to spread awareness for both Breast Cancer and Breast Reconstruction.
This sponsorship was a tribute to survivors and all those searching for a breast cancer cure. BRA Day was initially created as a day for building awareness for breast reconstruction, as many women who have undergone a mastectomy or lumpectomy are unaware of the reconstruction options available to them. As a reconstructive plastic surgeon, Dr. Merrick works often with breast cancer survivors, helping them feel confident about their body image after battling the disease. BRA Day and Breast Cancer Awareness Month are always important causes to him, as he has witnessed the effects breast cancer has had on his patients.
Dr. Merrick is a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in general plastic surgery, cosmetic surgery and reconstructive surgery. His goal is to help every patient find solutions to their health and wellness concerns.For more information, visit http://www.merrickplasticsurgery.com.
