I hope over the past year every one of my readers have enjoyed my Beard contest. I will be wrapping up this contest at years end. I’m going to miss it to but I will be replacing it with a monthly Spotlight on one bearded fellow I follow @bruceinthecity Instagram account. This person will not only be chosen for their Badass beard but for inspiring others through charity or personal story of strength and resilience! The beard feature will get a new name and I’m really excited to begin my search for the twelve bearded men who will inspire us all in 2019! Of course you will get a chance to vote for them and at the end of the year 2019 a Champion will be chosen to be ambassador for one year!

If you’re wondering where my inspiration comes from with regards to this new blog segment check out this weeks Bearded fellow and get inspired!

Ladies & Gents this is Harry!

facts about me

I am married to my beautiful best friend for almost 20 years & we share 3 children as well as love for new people & adventures!

I am a hunter, fisherman, and outdoorsmen. I find my solitude in the woods.

I make handmade knives, it’s a passion and I also use any fund earned to go towards paying medical bills and saving for a surgery.

I am a cancer fighter & survivor. I was diagnosed at 26 with an in curable rare cancer Multi-System LCH and have fought some big battles along the way. I was then diagnosed with a second cancer Adrenal Cancer 4 years ago and told to make my peace, but here I stand today before you a warrior who will never give in.
I believe we each are given our cross to bare and no matter what this life is precious and worth the journey.

I have always had some type of beard only shaving my full face 2 times , 1 the wife said she had to see ha! 2 for surgery. My beard is as much a part of me as my hands. And love the brotherhood it’s brought in my life.

Thank you Harry! If this doesn’t put a fire under your ass to get up and honour your life then I have no idea what will. As this Holiday season rolls on embrace your own challenges and as Harry reminded us, all of us must be the warriors of our own beautiful life!
