Jud Davis (cq), photographed on Wednesday, Feb. 8, 2012 at the Davis home in Lexington, Ky.   Beards for Buds' Jud Davis has stage IV lung cancer. He told his pastor, The Rev. Pete Jones, of Pisgah Presbyterian Church, that he thought more could be done to bring awareness to men's cancer and shared with him the Weather Channel's Jim Cantore's idea of growing beards to bring awareness and show support. Jones came up with the name Beards for Buds and shared the idea with Maxwell Street Presbyterian's minister Woody Berry. Now approximately 20 men from each church are growing beards and the two churches are competing to raise money for men's cancer research.  Photo by David Perry | Staff
