I am a Cancer Fighter. I am taking action to change the future of this disease for my friends, family, co-workers and Canadians nationwide. I am raising awareness and funds for the fight against cancer. Please join me in this endeavour!
My cancer journey started in September of 2001 with a diagnosis of Stage II Hodgkins Lymphoma. My Chemo treatments ended on April 18, 2002 and I have been cancer free since. Thank you to all of those at CancerCare Manitoba and all my friends and family for helping me win this battle.
Every year since then, I have participated in the annual Door to Door Campaign for the Canadian Cancer Socitey. Due to Covid-19, this is temporarily not possible, so I decided to do my own fundraiser,. With the help of my Fundraising Manager, ReaAnn Learmond, we raised over $12,000!!!.
I haven't had a haircut since September 17, 2020 and I stopped shaving when I went to Keeyask on October 22 to help diagnose issues with our first unit going online. I have not shaved since and vowed to keep the beard, untrimmed until our Unit 1 is spinning and fully commissioned. With help from Sheldon and Barry's team at Keeyask, I hope this will happen on Feb 7, 2021.
So here it is folks...
On, or about February 13, I will get a haircut and you will be able to choose a beard to go with it. For every $5 donated you will get one vote for a beard style (so if you donate $50, you get 10 votes, etc.). The uglier, the better! I vow to keep this beard until March 13, 2021 (or one month after the cut, whichever is later). If I decide I can't live with it and want it off, I will have to match the total donation amount at the time I make the decision. i.e., if there is $1000 raised by Feb 23rd, I would need to donate another $1000 to have it removed! The more money my friends donate the more likely I am to keep it.... You all know I am CHEAP!
