Feel Better about Yourself and Help Others, Too
As experts in the plastic surgery field, Beverly Hills Physicians regularly helps women feel great about their bodies. Time and time again we see how cosmetic surgery can go a long way in restoring a woman's self-confidence and, as a result, her overall mental and physical health.

Unfortunately, for many women fighting breast cancer, the decision to have breast reconstruction surgery is one they never thought they'd have to make. This fall, in honor of those fighting and surviving the disease, Beverly Hills Physicians is choosing to give back.

A portion of all breast surgery proceeds in October will be donated to a local charity that benefits breast cancer awareness and screenings. Through these contributions, they hope to join in with the national effort to detect cancer in its earliest form and to ease the burden and physical toll of cancer treatment.

Breast cancer treatment is a significant and relevant cause for BHP surgeons. While choosing an elective breast augmentation is by no means equivalent to a breast reconstruction following cancer, Beverly Hills Physicians and their patients understand that feeling beautiful and secure in one's body is important. In fact, the Beverly Hills Physicians team believes breast reconstruction has a major effect on a woman's recovery process. After a mentally- and physically-demanding cancer treatment process, breast reconstruction can make a woman feel like her ordinary self again. Through charitable efforts, we all can make this process a little bit easier and less stressful for women going through breast cancer treatment and reconstruction surgery. 249-4040

Brighton Beauty Gives Back
Through October 31, Brighton will donate $5 from each beautiful $60 Power of Pink bracelet to worthy charities. Over the years, over $4,750,000 has been donated to breast cancer charities that are working every day to save lives. The bracelet, available at Cobblestone Cottage, is fashionable year round - and with your purchase, Cobblestone Cottage will also contribute $5 locally to the Sheila R. Veloz Breast Imaging Center. 253-0209

SCV Dogs take a Bite Out of Cancer
Local residents and businesses, including the Tracy Team/Cobalt Realty Group, hope you'll join them at the American Cancer Society's Bark for Life event on Saturday, October 26 from 8am to 12pm. The event, which honors the caregiving qualities of canine companions, is a noncompetitive walk experience for dogs and their owners to raise funds and awareness in the fight against cancer. By supporting Bark for Life, you help the American Cancer Society save lives and help us move closer to a world with less cancer and more birthdays.

Bring your best canine friends for a fun-filled morning starting with a walk and then continuing with demos, contests, games and more! Just remember that your pups should be at least 6 months old, be on a leash and have a current rabies immunization. www.scvbark.org
