Just a quick one today guys, sadly I recently found out that my godmothers cancer has returned and she’s being flown to India for further assessment and hopefully treatment. This is the woman who introduced my parents to each other and without whom I wouldn’t exist.

I implore each and every one of you to speak to your friends and family about cancer and donate whatever money you can either directly through me or any number of worthwhile cancer charities wherever you are in the world because together we can beat this terrible disease.

If you would like to join me in looking like a dork for a month then please sign up to

I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.



  1. Hey Bunny, I’m so sorry to hear about your grandma’s cancer returning. This is also a subject close to my heart as well, and when donating to charity I support the Canadian Cancer Society and the Heart and Stroke Foundation whenever I can because my dad has battled and so far survived quadruple bypass surgery and three different cancers. Cancer is a horrible disease and I will be thinking of your grandma and sending her strength for the battle ahead. By the way, is this the grandma that your boys finally got to meet?

    • Hey Loony, this is my much younger godmother as opposed to grandmother, my boys did get to meet her in Zimbabwe when she was in submission. She grew up in my fathers hometown and went to school with my mother on the other side of Zimbabwe (Rhodesia back then) she introduced them as teenagers before their romance was finally rekindled some years later and eventually resulting in my arrival some years after that. She was a tobacco farmer’s wife before losing her home to Mugabe’s scum and revisiting her training as a teacher and eventual headmistress. She is a fighter and I will forever look up to her spirit and courage.

      • Sorry about that. It’s early morning here, and obviously my brain isn’t functioning quite right yet, so I saw grandmother instead of godmother. She does sound like a fighter though, and I’m sure she will beat this nasty disease!!

  2. thank you Loony, I appreciate it and your support of the Canadian Cancer Society
