Remember Must Love Kids?

by singlemomseeking on July 8, 2009


Do you remember those dads from that reality TV dating show, Must Love Kids?

Thanks to Facebook, I’ve stayed in touch with many of these great guys. And it’s Luke Himebaugh — above, with his daughters — who continues to blow me away.

I’ve been following Luke’s updates about his sister, Shayna, who was diagnosed with breast cancer at age of 27 in 2005. She fought back and was declared cancer-free. Recently, however, the cancer has come back and spread.

Luke, being Luke, declared that he had to DO something. So, this November, he’s walking 120 miles in back-to-back weekends — in San Diego and Arizona.

Yes, that’s 60 miles in three days — done twice! “Luckily that’s Thanksgiving week, so it’s a short work week and I can recover,” says Luke.

“After my sister’s Breast Cancer diagnosis, not only do I walk for Shayna — but for my mom, step-mom, nieces, daughters and all of my female friends (and, males can get it too!),” he adds.

So, are you ready for the contest? First, if you can donate to Luke’s walk, thank you!

Click on either of these links:

Luke’s San Diego Walk or Luke’s Arizona Walk

Here’s Luke’s offer:

If you donate $100, Luke will put your name — or your business name — on a T-shirt for one of the days as one of his sponsors.

If you donate $200 or morehe “will let you negotiate with me what I do on the walk.”

You heard that right.

“Would you like me to wear pink knee-high socks one day?” says Luke. “Done. Do you have something else in mind?  No problem… Last year I shaved my hair into a Mohawk and tried to use gel to dye it pink.”

Clearly, the gel didn’t work, Luke?


So, would do you dare Luke to do as he walks?

Get creative. You know that Luke will. Recently, Luke even posed half-naked (!) for a calendar to raise more money to fight breast cancer.

I wish I had THAT photo to show you, but I haven’t seen Mr. December — yet. Luke promised to send me “a couple of autographed copies after I get them.” (In fact, his own mother “is already selling them to ladies at work.”)


So, what do you need to do to win? Dare Luke… and one of you will win 250 free custom stickers of your choice! (They’re great for potty training, kid’s responsibility awards, or just for fun!)

All right, let’s hear what you’d like Luke to do!


This contest is open through July 16. The winner will be chosen by

P.S. In the meantime, I’m sending Luke 250 of these printed stickers — below — from to wear and give away, with his motto:


I walk in hopes that someday, my daughters will only know breast cancer as something that Auntie Shayna once had.”
