Remember Jesse? He’s MISSING IN PERU. Help Us Find Him.

Many of you will remember the article I wrote a few years ago about an incredibly inspiring kid by the name of Jesse Galganov who decided to find a way to be productive during some of his time coping with Post Concussive Syndrome by growing a moustache for Movember and generating a whole lot of money and awareness for the cause.

Jesse is now 22 years old, a university graduate and MISSING in PERU.  His mother Alisa, who is also my friend, is on her way to Peru to find her son. Rather than reiterate all of the details, I’ll let you watch / read one or some of the various reports (links below).
