After fighting cancer alongside my brother and watching him lose, after being there and supporting friends and family in their battles, cancer awareness and the support of research in the battle against cancer, in all its forms, is a very real and personal issue for me.
When I found out that we at BCBSM were going to be launching a campaign in support of men’s health and cancer awareness, and that we’re supporting Movember, I knew I wanted to be involved.
For Movember we’ve put together a team and we’re all starting off with a clean shaven face on November 1, 2013. I took it a step further and had my beloved beard shaved off professionally at The Berkley Chop Shop in Berkley, Michigan. Loren Papasian was my barber and I highly recommend the straight razor shave to all the guys out there!
Let’s pull together, shave those faces and grow your mustache for Movember. Support men’s health and cancer awareness. C’mon, #ShoYoMo
