Your “why” should make you cry

Day 17 e1416188859342 225x300 Your why should make you cry

 

Why I Mo:  Please take a close look and tell me what you see!  The upper lip of a prepubescent boy?  A middle aged man attempting to grow a moustache?  A man celebrating his 17th year of being cancer free? It would be difficult for me to argue against any of those, for they are all true.  However, I challenge you to look deeper and maybe you’ll see what I do.  I see a moustache that is much stronger than it appears; so much so that it is sustaining life.  I see a cancer fighting, suicide preventing, ribbon of honor.  I see my dear friend and mentor Mr. Joel Azpeitia, who was taken from us far too soon after beating prostate cancer and ultimately losing his tireless fight to leukemia. I see Joel’s humble wisdom, selflessness, and kindness. I see my best friend, the late Seann McMillan, taken from us far too soon due to suicide. I see Seann’s whit, his trademark wink, and his zest for life. I see myself laying in a hospital bed as a high school senior wondering if I’ll make it to Christmas. That’s why I Mo and I Mo hard for Movember.  My moustache and I are changing the face of men’s health by raising funds and awareness for prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health issues- especially suicide prevention.  I’m very fortunate to be here today; I have a second lease on life after fighting testicular cancer.  I am 17 years, today, removed from that boy in the hospital worried about life and death and I stand before you a man on a Movember mission. I don’t want to go solo.  I need your help.  I need you to join me! I please ask that you donate any domination of monies to my Movember account ( http://us.movember.com/mospace/1123176 ) today in honor or memory of anyone you know who has or is suffering from depression and/or cancer.   To kick start this, I will donate in honor of Joel and Seann.  For you two, and others have lost, I fight! I implore you to join my fight or start one of your own.  -Chris “Uno” Skaggs
