I'm not sure yet.
If I do, I would put "for all my homies in cancerconnection.ca and beyond" on the "I'm running for .." part of the t-shirt (do they still do that?).

I participated in this event every year for over a decade, almost a decade ago. I ran for the mothers and aunts of a few friends who had it. Back then and being "young", getting breast cancer in my life never crossed my mind. It wasn't in my family history.

Fast forward.

I was a few days out of surgery when the Run happened last year. I couldn't watch the commercials without bawling. I participated all those runs without paying attention to my own breasts.

I remember discussing last year's commercial with someone. It showed a woman baring her mastectomy scars. Someone who was bald and going through chemo. A young person. As uncomfortable it might be to show them, they are true realities for many of us. We are all the 1 in 8.

*high fives* to everyone who is participating.
