Be My Brother

Last year my cousin, Gav, set up a charity organization to support testicular cancer patients.

Be My Brother supports Testicular Cancer patients around the world . Education is critical to raising awareness amongst young men .
You can contact him in confidence at for further info or on Twitter @bemybrother.

To show how serious Gav was about it, he stopped drinking alchol for the entire year. This was an amazing feat, especially for a Teehan! I stopped drinking for January to help him, and it was hell! He set up a blog for it too - 

Gav raised something like 11000 euro for cancer research. And this year we hope to do the "cycle" in aid of Be My Brother.

Anyway...  this was the logo i designed for the whole thing. To be honest its actually inspired by a family photo of all the Dublin Teehans, so I'm pretty happy with it and even more happy once Gav saw it.
Gav hopes to have a website launched this year for the charity to make it even more official. Here's hoping 2011 is a kick-ass year for it.

I am in the U.S.A. and I can tell you that Gav's message and year without beer has reached international audiences. Cheers to Gav
