"Movember" Challenge

-->
My son Ethan is participating in the Movember Foundation’s November 2014 drive to “change the face of men’s health prostate cancer | testicular cancer | mental health.”

Particpants commit to growing a moustache during the month of November, and subscribing friends and family members to promises of assistance to the Foundation.

My son, very flatteringly, says this in his Movember webpage:



BEGIN QUOTE:

MOST PERSONAL MOTIVATION FORPARTICIPATING IN MOVEMBER IS MY DAD,LEW. ALTHOUGH MY MOM WON’T EVER LET HIM GROW A MUSTACHE, HE TAUGHT ME HOW TOBE A GENTLEMAN. I WOULD LIKE TO HONOR WHAT HE TAUGHT ME AND USE MY FACE (WHICH LOOKS REMARKABLY LIKE HIS FACE), TO HELP HIGHLIGHT IMPORTANT HEALTH ISSUES THAT WE ALL FACE. I BELIEVE STRONGLY INRAISING AWARENESS OF PHYSICAL HEALTH “MENTAL WELL-BEING.”

END QUOTE




I did take a crack at growing a ‘stache, but frankly – even in retirement – I did not have the patience, or the memory; I kept forgetting, and shaving it off in the morning, meaning I had to start over and over again so I finally deferred to my son’s capacity to cultivate tonsorial adornment, abandoning all hope that I might match his effort.

I’m posting this in the hope that addresses might throw some pocket change at Ethan’s effort.

I’m proud of his effort, and humbled by the way he thinks of my fathering.  I clearly did good work as Ethan is repeatedly finding ways to exercise his inventiveness at raising money for such profound causes. 

Thanks for your attention.

V/R,

Lew Stern
