Ben is growing a Mo!
Why? What is it about?
My mum died of Cancer in mid-September. I remember vividly the first time she told me she had Cancer in July 2008. Mostly I remember the fear in her voice and the need for family and care.
The type of Cancer my Mum had was a GIST, a cancer that forms in the intestine and usually isn’t diagnosed (as in her case) until it spreads elsewhere – when of course, it is almost certainly too late to treat.
I have two goals here…
1. Raise some money for prostate cancer because too many men think getting checked isn’t for them. Wake up!
2. Raise some awareness of Cancer in general, especially the type of cancer that can form deep inside your body without you knowing. Listen to your body and get checked if you suspect anything. Get a second opinion if you want, it is your body.
There are FOUR ways you can help.
1. Give money

1st of November
Starting out clean shaven…
6th of November
Taking shape…Emma (my eldest daughter) wanted to get in the photo too as she likes my moustache.
8th of November
Making progress… Again Emma was keen to get in the picture and I’m finding it isn’t easy to shave around but its making progress.
10th of November
33% Mo. It’s getting a bit out of balance. Maybe I need to do some Google searches on how to shave a mustache…
11th of November
Multi-coloured Mo. I’ve got a lot of different colours in my Mo. Ginger, grey, white, brown. How strange!
I had a go at tidying up the balance. Seems to have worked. This is harder than just normal shaving every day. Help make it worth the effort and send me a donation, even $5 would really help.
15th of November
50% Mo. Two little monkeys wanted to get in the photo today.
Half way there and $235 raised so far. Please give your donation to Movember, or even just hit LIKE above.
18th of November
It is getting very itchy now. Not long to go now.
24th of November
Please give to this excellent cause. Even a small amount like $5 or $10 would be awesome.
29th of November
It’s turning into a Monster
1st of December
It’s all over now… (for this year). Within 10 minutes of waking up I’d already shaved this whole thing off.
