I am a white man in my early thirties. I work at a coffee shop. I play drums. I ride a fixed gear bicycle. I wear skinny jeans. I have a mustache.
I’m a dick.
But, I am also like you.
Like you I have watched people I care about suffer from cancer. Like you I have mourned the loss of good friends who’s lives were taken by this horrible disease. Like you there are members of my family who were taken away from me because of fucking cancer.
Cancer sucks. So, I’m doing what I can to fight that fucker. I’m growing a mustache.
I’m participating in MOVEMBER.
What can you do? You can support my efforts by making a donation at http://mobro.co/MilesCrawford.
You can even write a check payable to “Movember Foundation”, reference my name and Registration Number 1617352 and send it to: Movember Foundation, PO Box 2726, Venice, CA 90294-2726
You might be thinking, “How much money are you REALLY raising with your silly mustache?” Well, as of this posting, I’ve personally raised $295, and the MOVEMBER movement worldwide has raised $51,991,906 (In only 18 days!)
Need a few more reasons:
• 1 in 2 men will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. (That’s right, half of ALL men.)
• 24% of men are less likely to go the doctor compared to women. (Men are terrified of doctors!)
I only have 10 more days to grow this duster and raise funds, so please come along for the ride.
Funds raised will help make a tangible difference to the lives of others. Through the Movember Foundation and their men’s health partners, the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG, Movember is funding world class awareness, research, educational and support programs which would otherwise not be possible.
