Over the years I’ve come across some fantastic supporters and I’d like to introduce you to Chris Frost, an avid Decembeard grower who keeps us posted on his bearded progress throughout the month of December.
Last year, Chris raised money and in return shaved his beard into a monkey-tail style.
This year Chris joined #BeardSeason in #Octobeard, continued to grow his follicles through #Septembeard and will be dying his #Decembeard white on Christmas day – what he calls #SantaBeard.
Everyone has a story. For personal reasons Chris won’t be raising money for the usual charities this Decembeard but I support him all the way.
“I have four relatives who have been diagnosed with cancer. My mum, both grandmas and step grandma.
My mum and her mum had breast cancer. My other two relatives have lung cancer.
My mum was accepted on to a drug trial as she has a rare aggressive form of cancer. Her condition improved significantly on the trial and the results are the best they’ve seen. I’m pretty sure she wouldn’t be here today without this trial. That’s why its for Yorkshire Cancer research.
All four of my relatives are now in remission and the future is looking brighter.”
