Kicking off 2007's Shave

Here we are again with another year of head-shaving, fund-raising fun! Steve has already completed his 150 mile ride for MS, so we are really starting late! As some know, I had planned on getting an early start this year. Sometimes life gets in the way....

Less than a month ago, my wife Kelaine was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. This is a bit ironic, since the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society is where I got the idea to Shave my Head for MS (more on that later). Between doctor's appointments, Gilda's Club and keeping our family healthy and rested, we have postponed our start time for the MS fund-raiser. After much prayer and discussion, we have decided to continue with the fund-raising for the MS Society. Kelaine wants to do something for those people living with MS every day that will not have the treatment and remission like she will experience living with Lymphoma. Ask for an invite to Kelaine's personal blog for more on how she is doing. Also see the links to the left for more information on Gilda's Club, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and MS.

I am keeping the pledge period short this year: two weeks, so get your pledges in early! We have lots of fun ideas to make up for last years pledge deficit - about $300 short - so keep coming back for more information. There will be additional fun and maybe even prizes!
