Discover Dr. Leong’s
Community Partnership with
Mission Plasticos: Reshaping Lives


“Sixty percent of women living in poverty with breast cancer are not given the opportunity or option to receive the final step, a step I believe is critical for them to regain their sense of femininity and self. These women are breast cancer survivors, but they deserve to continue their lives without a daily reminder of all they lost to be called survivors.”
—Karen Leong, MD., pg 26-28

“Dr. Leong is lead surgeon for Reshaping Lives California (soon to be Reshaping Lives America), which serves, among other patients, low-income and uninsured women who are post-masetectomy and in need of reconstructive breast surgeries.”
