NEWPORT BEACH, CA, ORANGE COUNTY, October 26, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — Celebrities, professional athletes, and businesses support the “No Double Bogies Foundation 2nd Annual Celebrity Golf Tournament,” dedicated to raising funds and awareness for individuals affected by Breast Implant Illness (BII), implant-related cancers, and explant surgery. The event was held at the Dove Canyon Country Club in Trabuco Canyon in Orange County on Monday, October 16, 2023. A multitude of women affected by Breast Implant Illness (BII) graced the occasion, generously volunteering their time and sharing personal stories during the dinner reception.
No Double Bogies founder, Ashley Penner, is a children’s golf instructor, and is a patient herself, battling breast implant illness. Her personal journey revealed a common struggle among women facing similar challenges. This realization ignited Ashley’s vision for the No Double Bogies Foundation, aimed at providing support to those dealing with breast implant illness. The No Double Bogies Foundation embodies the values of education, support, unity, and, most importantly, hope.
As someone who is battling the effects of BII after breast implants, Penner states. “I am grateful that I can turn my painful experience into a purpose by offering help and support to others. The golf platform has served as my avenue for raising awareness about the seriousness of this illness triggered by implants.”
Yale Medicine reported in their newsletter, the connection between breast implants and cancer risk has been addressed. The FDA has issued a safety warning regarding the potential development of certain cancers within scar tissue formed around implants. Yale Medicine Newsletter – Breast Implants and Cancer Risk.
The evening’s guest speakers added depth and significance to the event. Among them was Robyn Towt, a three-time cancer survivor and breast implant illness survivor who also serves as a patient advocate for the Global Patient Advocacy Coalition (GPAC). Her journey and advocacy led to the importance of Breast Implant Illness. Roxanne Vermeland shared her powerful story as a survivor of Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (ALCL), a rare form of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma that has been linked to breast implants. Her presence shed light on the serious health risks some individuals face, and Dr. Tim Sayed, a plastic surgeon with expertise in explant procedures, presented valuable insights into the complexities of breast implant complications. His knowledge and expertise added a medical perspective to the discussion, contributing to a more comprehensive understanding of the issues surrounding breast implants.
“For decades, patients have endured the detrimental consequences of breast implants and implant-related cancers,” Towt Co-founder of GPAC explains. “The FDA needs to ensure manufacturers are held responsible for updated labeling and potential side effects, which is currently lacking. Having comprehensive informed consent is essential for individuals to make educated and informed choices regarding breast implant surgery.”
