Dan Reichart No Shave November 2017

Help Lois and Me Turn These Lemons into Lemonaid

Many of you already know what happened to me on UNC's campus Thursday afternoon. It was pointless and senseless. Thanks to surrounding students, first responders, and the great people at UNC's burn center, I'm on the road to recovery. I hope to be back in the classroom by the beginning of the spring semester. As you can tell from my post-surgery picture, I won't be shaving this month (except for the hair that I lost in the explosion, and the rest that they took off during the surgery). I've thought about participating in "No-Shave November" for years, and now I have the perfect excuse. Help Lois and me turn something pointless and senseless into something meaningful. We've donated the first $100, and we're hoping that if everyone donates something, we can turn this into $1000 (and maybe more!) for cancer research and prevention. You don't need to not shave, I've got that covered. All you need to do is sponsor me. Any amount is welcome. --- 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 six 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.
