Ali on the Run Show Episode 654: The Pre-Surgery Check-In

“I spent my whole childhood obsessing over really wanting boobs. And now, at 38, these two things that I’ve had a pretty tumultuous relationship with… Once we finally learned to get along, we find ourselves back on shaky ground, and dare I say, breaking up for good?”

It’s been about a month since we last caught up. Now, I’m back, walking [messily] through my emotions as I get ready for my double mastectomy on Monday, July 3. I have some updates since that last chat, including the surprising results of my genetic testing (BRCA2 positive, which brought up a whole bunch of feelings), my hopes and plans for the Ali on the Run Show while I’m recovering, and what I’m afraid of right now (everything?).

And from the bottom of my very full, very grateful, very overwhelmed heart, thank you for the support and kindness. I’ve been completely floored by the contributions to the GoFundMe, and I will spend the rest of my entire life in gratitude. We’ve got this.
