The time has come to give testicular cancer its third annual punch to the groin. The now infamous Oneball Head Shave event is back! Strap yourselves in!
Not only will be shaving people's heads, eyebrows, legs and whatever else we can auction off, we'll also have a silent auction, amazing comedy show, a raffle, and perhaps even more!
The following organizations have helped make our 2012 event a reality. We encourage you to rush out and buy everything you can from these incredible folks!

"When I was diagnosed with testicular cancer in November 2010, if felt like my world was coming crashing down on me. At the time I didn’t know anything about testicular cancer, but after doing some research on the procedures I would be enduring my family and I started to feel better about the situation. During my chemotherapy sessions, a good friend of mine suggested I look at the Oneball website. He just so happened to be the auctioneer at the Shaveoff event. After searching the Oneball site, and watching Jason’s video diaries, I was very confident that everything was going to be ok."
"My wife and I attended the 2nd annual Oneball Headshave event in 2011. I was hooked, and eager to help the Oneball group in any way I could. I haven’t cut my hair since I lost it to chemotherapy over a year ago. What better way to support cancer survivors and current patients, than to become a shavee this year."

Attending the Oneball event last year was an incredibly moving experience. Witnessing the passion and drive of those involved and what they were able to achieve was an inspiration. I have known Jay Baker for many years, but I feel as though I got to witness a side of him that night, one that I admire and respect a great deal. My participation in this even is a no-brainer. I’m excited that I have the opportunity to share in the passion of my friends and contribute in any way I can to such an amazing cause. It’s an honor to have the chance to make a difference in the many lives of those affected by this disease.
Tom and his great head of hair grew up in Calgary and met Jason while windsurfing many years ago. Their friendship grew over many adventures both on the water and over drinks. Read More
This isn’t the first time Tom has given up his hair for Jay either, as a number of Jay’s friends shaved their heads prior to Jay’s initial round of chemotherapy.
"I have always been proud to have Jay as a friend. His relentless enthusiasm and lust for life is infectious and shines a light on all those who are lucky enough to call him a friend. After Jay was diagnosed with Cancer, what I found really impressive is that Jason’s positive attitude never collapsed. In the face of adversity, Jason rose, and now he asks all of us to rise in the fight against testicular cancer. I think he is the Winston Churchill of testicular cancer!"
"I like a man who grins when he fights"

Tom is proud to be a part of the Oneball head shave charity, and is looking forward to shaving his lovely head of hair for testicular cancer. Heck, if he raises more than $5,000 he will happily wax his back as well... but hopefully nobody wants to see that!
