No Bra Day 2020
No Bra Day is a time to show empathy for and solidarity with women who have had mastectomies due to breast cancer and can no longer wear bras.
Some people choose to celebrate No Bra Day. In my view, it is not a day that anyone should 'celebrate' at all. It is a tragedy that this women have had to cut parts of their own bodies off to prevent them from killing them. No one should have to do that. The day for celebration should come when this terrible disease no longer afflicts anyone.
Until then, it should be a day for sympathy and reflection. A reminder of how prevalent this disease still is. And a time to bring awareness to the cost that survival can come with. But also an inspiration to those who are currently battling for their lives that they can get through it despite that steep cost.
