Kevin Sheehan No Shave November 2018

Let it Grow and Join the Fight to End Cancer

On December 23, 2015, I was diagnosed with Stage IV Colon Cancer. I was devastated by the news because I had never had any symptoms and I was only 46 years old. By the time the cancer was detected it had spread from my colon to my liver. Twenty-two months and 34 rounds of chemotherapy later, I am thankful to be alive and living a fulfilling life with cancer. Living with cancer has given me tremendous perspective on life's priorities, and on the number of patients living with cancer. This is all possible by the research happening every day. It is my hope to live to see a cure for cancer. I am not shaving this month to fund critical research and education to save my life and the lives of many others. Each day, 22,000 people die from cancer worldwide (WHO). There's a good chance that someone you know and love will be affected by this disease. Nearly half of cancer diagnoses and deaths are preventable. No-Shave November's mission is to not only raise funds for cancer research and treatment but to educate the population about preventative measures. For over seven years, participants around the globe have put down their razors and foregone their hair appointments to join the fight against cancer. The No-Shave November campaign has successfully raised over $3.5 million dollars to combat this disease. Every dollar raised brings us one step closer in our efforts to fund cancer research and education, help prevent the disease, and aid those fighting the battle. Each whisker grown allows us to embrace our hair, which many cancer patients lose during treatment. Will you join me? Start by using the links to the right. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support of this lifesaving cause.
