The Patients of Courage: Triumph Over Adversity program honors reconstructive plastic surgery patients whose lives were restored through reconstructive plastic surgery and whose charitable actions influence the lives around them. ASPS members nominate patients who carry an optimistic outlook on life and positively affect people around them, despite the difficulties of their reconstructive procedures. These extraordinary reconstructive plastic surgery patients are honored by ASPS at its annual scientific meeting and receive a $1,000 grant award to be allocated to a not for profit of their choice in recognition of their bravery and charitable actions.
