Dominican-American basketball player Charlie Villanueva has alopecia, a condition that results in hair loss, but the power forward wants to remind others in the same circumstances not to feel shame or suffer a lack of self-worth.
So in my last blog post and in all of my social media (@cvbelieve), if you follow me, I have been mentioning this Kickstarter campaign that I recently launched. To be completely 100, I didn’t know what Kickstarter even was up till recently. Team Villanueva (Rob, Rob and Chawla) put me on to it. I loved the fact that it gets the crowd involved direct, allowing fans and my supporters to be a part of a movement…a bigger picture.
So I am finally back in Dallas after spending some time in the Dominican Republic, Florida, and home sweet home… New York City (Queens, stand up). I don’t officially have to report to the Mavs but wanted to get back to Dallas early, get some work in, meet some of the new guys, get up with my guy CP (Chandler Parsons) and start the grind. I am really looking forward to this season… I think we are going to surprise a lot of people.
