Owning / building tuned cars is a luxury we all charish....very easy to take for granted at times. Not everyone can afford to even own a car, let alone a modified one.....
Now with that in mind,
Some people (who are members of my site) may already know this, but a little over a year ago I was sidelined with multiple surgeries....It was a Cancer scare that I made it thru. The recovery took a full year of mostly being in the bed and not much else. During that time I a chance to think about my life and how lucky I was to be 'Healthy'. I LOVE building cars and own more than my fair share of modified Imports...it meant NOTHING to me for that stretch of time.
During my many trips to the Cancer research facility in Seattle, I couldnt help but notice the people that were not as lucky as me. The side effects of the treatment (as im sure you all know) causes hair loss. Young,old, black,White,Asian,Hispanic...any/and everyone.
Ive gotten a lot of work over the years due to my hair, shot with great photographers and hairshows with sum of the top stylist in the US...... but I thought it would serve others better.
I had it cut to donate it to "locks of love" ( http://www.locksoflove.org
) A non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvataged kids, who have long term medical related hair loss.
I had this done at the start of summer here when modeling jobs really pick up. I selected this time to show my commitment to others around the world who are not as lucky as I am.
This is sumthing that I will continue to do, for as long as I can.
I just want to encourage others to help any way that they can. It's not always about money ( or which charity you decide to support ) It could jus be an hour of your time that you donate that could change someones quality of life.
This post should not be taken as a 'downer' , but in fact to celebrate life and all the great things that come with it.
OK, back to cars now
