This one's for my old man (#movember)

Friends,

As you may know my father was diagnosed with prostate cancer last February, he has since undergone surgery and to the best of our family's knowledge he is currently cancer free.

But we are never really free from the cancer are we? Fear, worry, reminders of what it has done - or worse what it could still do - linger.  Moving on is often difficult, if not downright impossible.

As you probably know, the month of November has, for many, turned into the month of Movember. The month where men grow moustaches to raise awareness and money to help end prostate cancer.  This will be my third year participating in the effort.

Sure, its a simple gesture, but one with a noble cause at its core.  My Movember team this year is no different, its just me and my Dad.

If you'd like to make a donation my Movember efforts, you can do so here, or better yet, you could support my father's here.

PS - I've set up another blog to hopefully share side by sides of me and my old man as we race to grow the best mo.

PPS - Dad - I love you like a father, like a brother, and like a friend.  This one's for you.
