Living on the razor’s edge!
I think David was a little nervous about actually showing me his upper lip, because despite 33 years of marriage, I have never seen it. But he overcame that fear when–in just over a day and a half– more than 1300 people made donations to support the research that is going to find a cure for this devastating disease. From great friends of CURE like Carole King to “MoJo” viewers who told us “they can’t get enough”–we are both touched and humbled by the good will and display of concern. Many are brand new donors, who are just being exposed to CURE and epilepsy for the first time.
We continue to need your help. Scientific progress is years in the making, and unless we search for the answers they will not come to friends and family who are affected by this devastating disease. One in 26 Americans will develop epilepsy in their lifetime-this is a huge public health concern for our country and beyond.
Please join David and Joe Scarborough-we’re having fun with this campaign but it is truly serious business, with very real potential to transform and save lives. Please help us reach our goal!
Below are some of the notes donors shared with us… please visit www.slashthestache.com to read more.
Joe, we can’t get to New York. We’re from Climax Springs, MO. I want to see you sing (I know you’re good); I want to see David’s mustache cut off by whomever; I want to see you look like Groucho/Selleck or any of the rest. Please reconsider and televise the process for all of us out here in the fringes. By the way, I’m a lifelong Democrat, but I’ll vote for you if you run for anything. You’re sincerely concerned about our country. PS – PLEASE stop interrupting Mika. If I want to know about the latest sports stuff, I’ll watch ESPN. Bless you all! You”re the Fair & Balanced ones.

I think Joe should grow the stash and Mika (a fellow Pollack) should cut it off… below the chin. Just joking. It was a privilidge to donate to this wonderful cause.
I am contributing to a great research and I also feel sorry for Mika, it would be really bad to see Joe with a mustache. The Harpo style wasn’t too bad though!
I will kick-in an extra $50 to see Joe in that “Groucho look”, and $50 more if he scurries around the set in a stoop.

In honor of both Mr. Axelrod and Mr. Scarborough reaching “across the political aisle” for a common cause to defeat Epilepsy, we salute you both, and trust our donation will multiply many times over to find a cure. Thanks to you both, and to all who work so hard for so many!
And thanks for setting an example for all those currently in office at federal and state levels to follow in seeking common ground to resolve this country’s current difficult problems for the benefit of all citizens of this great nation, the USA.
