Grow for the Cure was born when a friend’s battle with Lung Cancer brought attention to the lack of funding dedicated to fight the disease. Imagine if men could raise money simply by not shaving. Good news—now they can by using this fun, fundraising website! It takes an average of 15 days to grow a beard. During that time, approximately 6,500 people die of Lung Cancer and over 9,000 new diagnoses are made worldwide. The interactive platform lets people volunteer to grow a beard and then have friends donate to support them and the cause. Grow for the Cure not only benefits the LCF, but it also ignites discussion about Lung Cancer.
