Movember, Men's Health, and how you can help

Movember is now in full swing, and I have the skeevy-looking upper lip to prove it.



Wait, what the heck is “Movember” again?

Movember is the month formerly known as November, where men and women across the globe join together to raise awareness and funds for men's health issues. Men grow and women support a Mo (moustache) for 30 days to become walking, talking billboards, for our men's health causes – prostate and testicular cancer initiatives.

A Few Facts About Prostate and Testicular Cancer

  • 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in his lifetime.
  • In 2012, 242,000 new cases of the disease will be diagnosed and more than 28,000 men will die of prostate cancer.
  • Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in American males between the ages of 15 and 35.
  • 8,590 men will be diagnosed with the disease in 2012 and 360 will die.
