Relay For Life - Red Bra Lap!




Friday at 1PM I walked in the Red Bra Lap at the Allegan County East Relay For Life Cancer walk. I had a blast!

If I understand it correctly, there was proposed Federal legislation that would have allowed insurance companies to not pay on cancer screening costs. There were many demonstrations by women wearing red bra's to bring awareness to the pending legislation. The legislation was defeated. Mama had a mammogram in May and cancer was detected and removed - stage 1, undetectable except for the mammogram that caught it.

Some local Relay For Life Rallies have included a Red Bra Lap as part of their relay festivites. Yep, I participated with about 150 other walkers.
