Long time no post peeps!

Since I started treatment last year, I had not cut my hair. I cannot recall why but recently at work, a colleague mentioned to me "it's time Pierre". My hair is just about as long as I had it in my 20's. The more I thought about this the more I realized that I needed to do something right, ergo the "Pierre's Hair Affair".

Sunnybrook Hospital and Dr. Gerard Morton in particular helped renew my lease on life. Call it PayBack or Pay-It-Forward, I created this event so that on October 7, 2011 and our return from our Bermuda cruise, I will shave/buzz my head down to the wood. We will video this for YouTube. My goal is to raise $2,000 for prostate cancer research and so far within 72 hours we are at $800 and climbing. This is thanks to some great Corvette friends too. Big shout-outs and high-fives to Rick, Maria, Patti and Deb from the Corvette posse.

If you feel like supporting Sunnybrook Hospital for this, please go to this link:

Pierre's Hair Affair

It will generate a tax receipt as well. Thank you very much all of you and PLEASE DO NOT FEEL OBLIGATED. Your kind words and support throughout this "Adventure have been so appreciated.

Peace.

Ha HA! Awesome!

So glad to have you back on here Pierre and to hear that you are doing better. I look forward to helping out when I get back from my trip.

I can't wait to see the pictures!

Done. Best of luck with your fundraiser, Silversurfer-- not sure I'd be as brave so kudos for stepping up.

Cheers,
C.

Manny, I seem to remember you are already down to the wood ... not that i'm that far behind you. lol

I'm gettin' a little thin myself -- so that's why we're 'supporting' and not 'participating'....:D

Good luck SilverSurfer.. That's a great cause.

Congrats on one fine job, man.

That's a lot of work and involved some self sacrifice.

Kudos for the achievement.

Here is the great news peeps. We raised $3,356 in practically no time. The number keeps climbing on occasion and I went through with the head shaving. I am officially bald with a major 5 o'clock shadow. fortunately my hair seems to be growing back with a vengeance (YAY).

No worries, Pierre, it's ok.....If the truth were known, I've often thought of 'trimming' mine right back too for convenience and whatever.-- tho I think it will take something like a fundraiser to make me finally bight the bullet.:D

The other problem I have is that I hate hats -- or they hate me, and I wouldn't want to get drafty on top.

I see you're making up for the 'drop top' with a little on the chin.

Cheers once again for the bravery all 'round.:D

Looks good Pierre! Think of all the time you'll save getting ready in the morning and the cost savings of not having to use shampoo! All time and money that can go into the surfer!
