The Young and the Breastless

Thanks to those of you who sponsored Ella, go-Daddy-O, and I for the Run for the Cure. We raised $250!

Over 12,000 men, women, children, and dogs participated in the run. We walked the 5 km with our friend Gabi, who is a member of a support group called The Young and the Breastless. Some members of this group were interviewed for an article in the West Ender.

Most of the women in our group are young mothers," says Ruth Kwok, also a member of the Y&B. "And for them, it's not just sexuality but mortality: to be in your 30s and not know if you're going to see your kids go to kindergarten.

Needless to say, as well as raising some money for breast cancer research on Sunday, we shed a few calories and a few tears. We'll be back next year.
