My husband and a group of men he works with are all participating in the month of Movember for the Movember Foundation. October was huge when it came to raising awareness for breast cancer and helping out women, but I haven’t heard much in the way of raising awareness for men and prostate cancer and that is what the month of Movember is all about. So I’m really proud of my husband and wanted to help him raise awareness for Men’s health by supporting him on my blog. He’s been very vocal about this cause, answering everyone’s questions about what he’s doing. He sent me the following e-mail and I want to share it with everyone else:
This Movember I’ve decided to donate my face to raising awareness about cancers that affect men. My commitment is the growth of a moustache for the entire month of Movember, which I know will generate conversation, controversy and laughter.
I’m doing this because:
– 1 in 2 men will be diagnosed with cancer in his lifetime
– 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime
This is a cause that I feel passionately about and I’m asking you to support my efforts by making a donation to support the great work of the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG. To help, you can either:
– Click this link http://us.movember.com/mospace/781946/ and donate online using your credit card or PayPal account
– Write a check payable to Movember, referencing my name or Registration Number 781946 and mailing it to: Movember, PO Box 2726, Venice, CA 90294-2726
The money raised will help make a tangible difference to the lives of others, through the world’s most promising prostate cancer research and LIVESTRONG‘s programs that support young adults and their families battling and surviving cancer.
He has generated a lot of conversation as everyone noticed when he shaved off his beard and moustache. He looked like a different person. The Movember Foundation works from prevention, to survivorship, through to finding a better screening test and treatment options for prostate cancer and Movember is having an impact.The Movember Foundation works with LIVESTRONG improving the lives of young adults and their families battling and surviving cancer and with Prostate Cancer Foundation looking for a better screening test and for better treatment options.
