Most of us have had personal experience of Cancer, whether by it attacking our own bodies or those of our family, friends or colleagues. You’re certainly lucky if you can say it has not affected your life in some way.
Mobius Director, Chris Benham shares his story, as he takes part in Macmillan Cancer Support’s ‘Brave the Shave’ appeal. Between now and 27 November, when he will literally have his locks skilfully removed, he is refusing to visit the barber. So if you see him around with an unusually long mop of curls, it’s because he wants to be able to donate as much hair as possible to the cause.

Today I recognise how these events changed my life. My mantra of joie de vivre, carpe diem, never say, “if” but “when”. It is with this attitude developed from what happened with my parents, Jenny and Russ, and more recent family experience of Cancer, that now is my time to seize the day, put something back, that helps current and future generations of Cancer sufferers.
