+Marie Ennis-O'Connor has gathered and honored patient voices in another great piece of work. Thanks Marie for allowing me to share the Breast Advocate app from developer +Minas Chrysopoulo MD FACS. The power of #SharedDecisionMaking can now be in the palm of the patient's hand through their #breastcancer decisions.

Your research can affect your outcomes. Do your homework and choose your reconstructive surgeon wisely. Find a board certified surgeon who has a high success rate, engages you in a #SharedDecisionMaking conversation about the risks, recovery and expected outcomes of your surgery. It will make a difference in the confidence and femininity you gain back after a mastectomy.

What is #PatientAdvocacy? I encourage you to listen to us, ask us questions, value our wealth of knowledge and the lived experience we bring to the table, and most importantly, invite us to share in conversations about how we can improve the lives of patients we all focus on daily.
