Movember – Fighting Cancer One Upper Lip At A Time
It’s Movember, the month formerly known as November, which is dedicated to growing moustaches and raising awareness and funds for men’s health. I have joined the movement and will be donating my upper lip, by cultivating a genuine 100% face grown moustache to the cause for 30 days. My moustache (Mo) will spark conversations, and no doubt generate some laughs; all in the name of raising vital awareness and funds for cancers affecting men.
Why am I so passionate about men’s health?
- 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime
- A man is diagnosed with prostate cancer every 2.2 minutes
- 1 in 2 men will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime
- 24% of men are less likely to go the doctor compared to women
Now, I’m on the hunt for trusty and fearless pioneers to join me by signing up for my team. Together we can change the face of men’s health. As more people become Citizens of Movember, more lives will be impacted. You can grow a moustache as a Mo Bro, or join as a Mo Sista to show your support and help recruit other Mo growers to the team.
To join my Movember team:
Once registered, Movember will send you all the information you need to start raising awareness and funds for men’s health as part of my Movember team.
