We all know about Breast Cancer Awareness month and what a great cause it is, but I have one question...What about the men?
This coming month is Movember (the month formally known as November.)
In an effort to raise awareness for men's health, including prostate and testicular cancer) my team and I will be wearing moustache's all month long. We work at Yale Cancer Center doing research for prostate cancer. The men are growing in moustache's and the women are drawing or wearing them. Everytime someone stops and asks why it is a great chance to spread the word of Movember. Last year this worked wonders and I was able to speak to a ton of people!
Men’s health is a cause I am passionate about and I’m committed to make a difference by helping to raise vital funds and awareness for prostate and testicular cancer.
Those who would like to support me in my role as a moustache merchant for Movember and help me to make a difference to the state of men's health. I am asking you to help support my personal journey by making a donation. The size of which isn’t important, every little helps Movember to continue its funding of world class programs. To highlight the importance of what I am doing, take a look at these statistics:
- 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime
- This year 242,000 new cases of prostate cancer will be diagnosed
- This year 8,290 men will be diagnosed with testicular cancer
