Growing a 'Stache in Movember


I've been involved in fund-raising for cancer research for a couple years now through the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life. Now I've joined the "Movember" movement. This is a month-long, world-wide effort to bring attention to those cancers which affect men most. As part of the effort I'm going to grow a moustache through the month formerly known as "November."

I hope you will join me by considering a donation, large or small. The funds will go to Prostate Cancer Foundation and the Lance Armstrong Foundation (LIVESTRONG).

To make a donation you can either:
  • Click this link http://us.movember.com/mospace/304584/ and donate online using your credit card or PayPal account , or
  • Write a check payable to ‘Movember Foundation’, referencing my Registration Number 304584 and mailing it to: Movember Foundation, PO Box 2726, Venice, CA 90294-2726.
All donations are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law.

The Prostate Cancer Foundation will use the money raised by Movember to fund research to find better treatments and a cure for prostate cancer.

The Lance Armstrong Foundation will use the money raised by Movember to fund:
  • The LIVESTRONG Young Adult Alliance program which has the goal of improving survival rates and quality of life for young adults with cancer between the ages of 15 and 40.
  • Research initiatives to further understand the biology of adolescent and young adult cancers.
Please also consider joining my team - there's a link leading to a sign-up page on the donation page linked above. Ladies can join too - and they don't have to grow a 'stache to help out.
