The Final Mo for Movember 2013


Another Movember has come and gone. During the month, I raised $150 for cancer research (you can still donate to my Mo Space) and my team raised nearly $50,000.

I began the month by shaving off my facial hair to grow a new Mo during Movember. Here’s how I looked when I started the month:

I ended the month with a moustache that became the envy of my neighbors (check out my Mid-Month Mo). As the old saying goes, “With great moustache comes great responsibility.” Therefore I decided to put my moustache to good use and try some new careers.

Although I posted these photos for fun, I have a more serious intent. My first Movember post, “Movember 2013: Fighting Cancer for My Friend,” explained why I’m so passionate about eradicating cancer. One of my best friends was fighting colon cancer and I wanted to do all I could to help him beat it. Sadly, he lost the fight on 11/08/2013.  I don’t want anyone else to lose loved ones to cancer. That’s why it’s so important for all men to get regular health exams. Don’t wait until you get sick to visit a doctor. Make it a part of your regular health routine along with eating right and exercising. And let’s keep fighting to make this world cancer-free.

Stay Strong,
