Save Second Base

Sometimes it’s just easier to laugh about it, even if it truly is sad or depressing or angering at the core. Is laughter not the best medicine? Well, you can’t write a prescription for that … or can you …

SaveSecondBase

With Save 2nd Base you can definitely write your own prescription by empowering your “pink with a wink” for breast cancer. The goal of the company is to honor Kelly Rooney by giving back to the Kelly Rooney Foundation and other breast cancer non-profits ($30,000 so far), and give people a voice to empower themselves over breast cancer using humor. The Kelly Rooney Foundation helps support the research and eradication of breast cancer concentrating its efforts on young women by pledging funds for research surrounding high-risk women under the age of 40. The Kelly Rooney Foundation was started after on July 11, 2006 Kelly Rooney lost her battle with breast cancer at 43 years young. She left behind a husband, five children, among other family members and many friends. “Breast cancer is no laughing matter, but we can fight it with HUMOR!” Save 2nd Base continues saying, “cancer can take one’s hair, energy, and mobility, but not your sense of humor.”

Kelly with her family

Kelly Rooney helped name the company Save 2nd Base, which was her team’s name for a local breast cancer walk and actually designed the original tee herself. The company, Save 2nd Base, offers healing through humor, awareness, and by donating to help find a cure using fun witty apparel for both men and women. They donate half of their earnings to organizations, such as the Kelly Rooney Foundation, searching for a cure to breast cancer which is stealing 2nd base.

In case you don’t get the 2nd base reference it refers to sexual activity in an innocent way using baseball terms. First base is kissing. Second base is breast action. Third lies below the belt. A homerun or home plate is going all the way. So the humor is “Save 2nd Base” has to do with one of the pleasures and features of being a woman.

Sadly, everyone seems to be touched by breast cancer these days. We have a young survivor in my MOMS Club chapter, my paternal grandmother had it, my husband’s grandmother had it, and my aunt (non-biological) had it too. But breast cancer doesn’t just attack women, men can get breast cancer too though it is less common in men. Remember to have your doctor check you your breast tissue at your annual physical and at the age of 40 you should also have your first mammogram. Though you are your first line of defense; know your body by performing MONTHLY self-breast examinations!

Save 2nd Base not only offers appear with their signature phrase, they’re finding more funnies for supports to wear, and it’s not just shirts for women. Save 2nd Base all offers hats, bags, a skort, flipflops and a magnetic decal. Here are some of my favorites:

I was sent a signature t-shirt thanks to Save 2nd Base to let you all know about their apparel line. So here’s the deal, when I have ordered from non-profits I often feel I’m really just donating, not getting a high quality product. However, when I pulled the t-shirts (yes, that’s an “s” … we have some giveaways!) out of the envelope I noticed how truly soft the alternative apparel’s “vintage soft” 100% cotton tees felt. I actually wore mine that day and night to get a feel for the shirt, and I like it. I’m a t-shirt girl, but I’m often very disappointed at the quality of t-shirts especially after a wash. This t-shirt did shrink a bit; I noticed more around than up. The fit is still dead-on for the female fitted t-shirt size. The fabric is still soft and comfortable. I really do love this t-shirt!
