November is “No-Shave November”. A time to help bring awareness to those in need with cancer and not just a time we get to grow “fun beards and mustaches”.
“No-Shave November is a month-long journey during which participants forgo shaving and grooming in order to evoke conversation and raise cancer awareness. The goal of No-Shave November is to grow awareness by embracing our hair, which many cancer patients lose, and letting it grow wild and free. Donate the money you typically spend on shaving and grooming to educate about cancer prevention, save lives, and aid those fighting the battle.” – NoShaveNovember

Our fight is all about advocacy and research. We’re the leaders when it comes to advocacy in colorectal cancer. We make sure our voices are loud at home and on Capitol Hill. We also lead the way for colorectal cancer research advocates. We train people on how to get involved in the science world, and we make a difference! We give grants to scientists working to cure colorectal cancer, and we put experts in the same room to talk about how to move things forward. This will be our fight until we see victory – a cure.” For more information: https://fightcolorectalcancer.org/
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. St. Jude is where doctors often send their toughest cases, because St. Jude has the world’s best survival rates for some of the most aggressive forms of childhood cancer. St. freely shares the breakthroughs we make, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.
