“Offering women education, treatment, and the opportunity to regain their lives while remaining close to home and their support networks as standard care is the core of Restore More,” says Dr. Emilia Dauway, Restore More founder.

Restore More aims to raise awareness of breast cancer treatment options through education and increased access to breast reconstruction by providing funding for women in regionally disadvantaged areas.

“Our vision is to empower breast cancer survivors to have a meaningful quality of life through the practice of mindful living,” says Dr. Emilia Dauway, Restore More

preservation or mastectomy.
