“International FLAT Day” was created to celebrate going flat – to promote breast reconstruction awareness, to promote flat closure (breastless, chest wall reconstruction after mastectomy), to promote flat reconstruction as a valid choice, and to bring together the flat community in sisterhood!
October is breast cancer awareness month, and the 7th is the “Day of Maat” – the Egyptian Goddess who represents TRUTH and JUSTICE. The 7 principles of Maat are: Truth, Justice, Harmony, Balance, Order, Reciprocity, and Propriety. These principles really reflect the “heart” of the shared flat movement!
International FLAT Day began as a joint project of flat advocates Christy Avila (Fierce, Flat, Forward), Robyn Towt (Breast Implant Safety Alliance), Devorah Vester Borenstein, Penny Dubbs Dudek, and Kim Bowles (Not Putting on a Shirt). We share a common goal of wanting to #putflatonthemenu by celebrating the flat advocacy community, and enabling “open-source” sharing of resources on going flat developed by our diverse and passionate flat advocacy community.
