Be Part of the Mo-vement During Mo-vember

Have you noticed recently that there seems to be a lot of men sporting new mustaches? There is a reason for this. By now, we are well aware that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month (we wrote about it last month). This month is Movember (mo is slang for mustache) where globally, men are growing mustaches to raise awareness and funds for men’s health issues such as prostate cancer.

My brother-in-law Brian had prostate cancer and supports the cause of early detection through PSA (Prostate-Specific Antigen) screening (he is always asking my husband, Scott, what his PSA is). Although the PSA screening is controversial because sometimes prostate cancer can be very slow to grow to cause any sort of life threatening problems and that sometimes unnecessary surgery is performed that can cause incontinence and sexual dysfunction. The bottom line is, like with breast cancer, that early detection is critical for increasing the survival rate of prostate cancer.

Like over a million other men (and women) world wide, Brian is helping raise awareness during Movember.

Started in Australia by a group of men in 1999, Movember now has an international website where Mo Bros (men growing mustaches) and Mo Sistas (Women who support the men in their lives who are growing mustaches) seek out sponsors for their Mo-growing efforts.

Just as women sported pink hair during Breast Cancer Awareness month, men wear their efforts on their faces. At the end of the month these men either throw their own party or attend one of the infamous Gala Parties Partés  held around the world. Last year over $80 million were raised globally. Will you be a part of the Mo-vement this year?

Go to Movember to see how you can get involved.
