Or should I say WEAK …
It’s been a long time since I’ve purposely grown any sort of sculpted facial hair. This is gonna take some work.


Or should I say WEAK …

It’s been a long time since I’ve purposely grown any sort of sculpted facial hair. This is gonna take some work. In the meantime, I thought I’d give you all a little background on the charity this furry endeavor is benefiting.

Since 1884, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center has treated more pediatric and young adult cancer patients than any other institution in the world. Your donations to Mustaches vs. Cancer go directly to making sure they continue their fine work for another century … and beyond.

From Their Website:
The world’s oldest and largest private cancer center, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) has devoted more than a century to patient care as well as to innovative research, making significant contributions to new and better therapies for the treatment of cancer.

Founded in 1884 as the New York Cancer Hospital by a group that included John J. Astor and his wife, Charlotte, the original building on the Upper West Side of Manhattan began its move to its present location on York Avenue in 1936 when John D. Rockefeller, Jr. donated the land upon which, in 1939, Memorial Hospital was constructed. Between 1970 and 1973, a new Memorial Hospital was constructed and this building stands on the site today.

There are many ways to help. I’ve decided to look a little foolish and have a little fun in the name of a good cause. You can sponsor me by making a donation on my behalf (and checking my progress) on the Mustaches vs. Cancer website.

What is Mustaches vs Cancer?
I was asked by Brian Childs of Asylum.com if I’d be willing to grow a mustache to fight cancer. This was at a recent blogger meetup in NYC and, in the environment of jovial camaraderie, I said, “Why of course I would.” Read More
