Louisiana Breast Cancer Survivor Uses Law to Help Patients
Imagine being told you have breast cancer not once, not twice, but three times. It happened to Kim Sport, but she decided to fight. This petite but very tough lawyer from Louisiana resurrected an often overlooked law on the books that can benefit all breast reconstruction patients in the state of Louisiana and founded the charity aptly named Breastoration. It's a philanthropic partnership to assist and educate women contemplating surgical options following a diagnosis of breast cancer. A program of the Cancer Association of Greater New Orleans, Breastoration provides educational resources to empower women nationwide at risk for, or diagnosed with, breast cancer.
The 2012 Patients of Courage series highlights breast reconstruction patients who are now making a difference in the fight against breast cancer.
