More Birthdays Needed

with 2 comments


My father would’ve been 57 today. He passed away in Dec of 2011 almost one month after he turned 56. Cancer sucks. Cancer sucks so hard. Losing him at such a young age was horrible. As most of you know, it changed my life. I chose to make changes for (hopefully) the better.

I want other people to have more birthdays so PLEASE donate to my Movember campaign.

If you read this, I’m asking you to donate $5-$10 so that other little girls out there can watch their daddies grow old and have more birthdays. Let’s rise above the stereotypes. Men get sick too. Get a checkup. Change the face of Men’s Health!

Please help me get to at least $60 today in celebration of my dad’s birthday. DONATE HERE 

Smile Daddy!

Movember? But you aren’t a Man!

with one comment

A few of you guys may not know why I’m participating in #Movember. My dad is currently passing away from what started out as thyroid cancer and spread to multiple brain tumors. He didn’t know anything was wrong until a few years ago. He wasn’t the type to go to the doctor a lot so they weren’t able to catch it “early” like doctors like to do for cancer. Fast forward past multiple surgeries and me almost losing him last year to now- He is in hospice care and we’ve reached the end. There is only one way to leave hospice care…..

John Twine
My Daddy and I

I know that each day people pass away but this is my Daddy. The BEST man in my life. He raised me to be the wonderful and strong person that I am and he taught me to stand up for myself. So I’m taking a stand for Men’s Health.

There are also too many men who are just too stubborn to go to the doctor. Stop it. It’s not “uncool” to go get a checkup. Follow the recommended doctor appointments. Someone out there depends on you even if you don’t realize it. Continue to be around for their sake.

If you read this, I’m asking you to donate $1 in the name of my Daddy – John Twine so that other girls out there can watch their daddies grow old. Let’s rise above the stereotypes. Get a checkup. Change the face of Men’s Health
