It’s Thanksgiving morning and my heart is full. I have a beautiful wife, wonderful kids, great extended family. Everybody is, for the most part, happy and healthy. I’m truly blessed.
I am also extremely grateful to have been part of a Movember fundraising effort that’s raised well over $1,000 for the My Pinnacle Network Movember team. The response has been overwhelming. It’s quite true what they say that when you give you get.
The Movember fundraiser ends on Saturday, November 30. I have been informed that I’m but a few hundred dollars away from achieving their Platinum Club status for raising more than $1,000 as an individual. It would be quite an honor to achieve that status. If you can help with a small donation, that would certainly be appreciated by the men who are fighting the good fight against prostate cancer.
I remember when my father had his surgery for his prostate cancer. I had booked a vacation to Club Med Moorea in Tahiti before he set the date. So, I was literally on the other side of the world when he had the surgery. I was in a paradise thousands of miles away, but my mind and heart were with him.
Dad made it through the surgery with flying colors. But I never felt so helpless in my life. That’s part of why I’ve been so passionate about this fundraiser (some might say annoying). If we can prevent future sons, daughters, sisters, brothers, husbands and wives from feeling this way, then all the effort will have been worth it.
I’ll close by wishing you and yours a happy Thanksgiving. Here’s my link if you want to donate http://us.movember.com/mospace/1515062. You can also send a check made out to ‘Movember’, referencing my registration ID: 1515062 and mailing it to: Movember US, P.O. Box 1595, Culver City, CA 90232.
Happy Thanksgiving, everybody and God bless.
