Bridging the Gap foundation is the only organization created to educate empower and assist women with their rights, choices and options in their complete Breasthetic recovery, before during and after breast cancer.
This is not COMPLETE breast reconstruction after a mastectomy!
Women need nipples to make white mounds on their chests into breasts!
There is not nearly enough information available through the process educating these women on their aesthetic choices. Most are unaware that they even have choices in their esthetic recovery. Most are unaware of the Women’s Health and Cancer Rights Act passed in 1998 guaranteeing every women’s right to complete breast reconstruction post mastectomy. Most are unaware that, even when they choose complete reconstruction and insurance companies deny their claim to these rights, they can appeal these unjust denials and be reimbursed for the services that their insurance companies claim to provide.
Bridging the Gap Foundation is dedicated to helping women unravel the red tape surrounding the pink ribbon.
The Red Tape Surrounding the Pink Ribbon
A young women, Susan, came into Rachell Hall's Breasthetic Clinic for her final reconstructive procedure (what Rachell calls Breasthetics™). After a consultation, she booked an appointment. A week later she called to cancel the appointment because her insurance company told her the procedure was not medically necessary. Looking at Susan’s before picture of surgically created white breast mounds with no nipple or areola and also understanding that at this time, the young woman is a mother of an eight-year-old daughter, you can clearly see why the procedure is medically necessary! Rachell was outraged and invited the young woman to keep her appointment anyway and 45 happy minutes later, Susan was thrilled to say that she looks and feels like a real girl again!
Susan’s story motivated Rachell to throw herself into the battle in attempt to make certain Susan’s insurance company and all other insurance companies fairly reimburse women for their final reconstructive procedures after breast cancer.
