To be a resource and a support system for the women who have had mastectomies as a result of breast cancer or BRCA+ genetic mutations, educating them on reconstruction options, and ultimately assisting them with the cost of reconstructive surgery

The AiRS Foundation is an amazing organization that helps breast cancer survivors and "previvors" feel whole again through breast reconstruction. AiRS addresses the often overlooked emotional recovery from breast cancer. AiRS partners with physicians all over the country to make breast reconstruction affordable, making every dollar donated to AiRS go much further. I am a survivor and have been affiliated with AiRS for over six years. I would highly recommend the AiRS Foundation to anyone needing resources for breast reconstruction. AiRS truly cares about its clients and works tirelessly to advocate, educate and support women enduring either a breast cancer diagnosis or the diagnosis of a breast cancer genetic mutation such as BRCA. There are many survivors of breast cancer who are not able to afford breast reconstruction and are left with a loss of self-esteem and often times depression. The AiRS Foundation helps women restore their self-esteem and ultimately, their lives.
