Poll question: Ever participate in the Race for the Cure? (Komen, breast cancer)
Just did it for the first time this past Saturday. One of my wife's friends has just been diagnosed a few days ago.

If you yourself are a breast cancer survivor and you feel comfortable sharing your experience with RftC here, please do so.

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

1. I've done it several times
until last year, when our local race offered a new "sleep in for the cure" option.

2. I think they offered that option in Dallas, too
Me, I took the 5K. My feet hurt, but it's for a good cause.

4. I did it for my second time this year.
My grandmother and a family friend both died of breast cancer, and a friend's wife just underwent a double mastectomy this past November.

It was a very inspiring event. I admire anyone who takes part in these races/walks!

6. My mother used to help out on race day.
She lived with cancer for 15 years. She developed a second primary site in her remaining breast and was prepared to endure more chemo but her body just gave out.

8. The race in New Orleans is a lot of fun
and the cause is incredible. My stepmom died of cancer. I wore her name on my back as I ran.
