It is that time of year! With the start of November comes the start of lip blankets and our attempt to raise awareness about prostate cancer. We are only one team on one network of people all over the world trying to get people past their discomfort and to the realization that this is one of the caners that, if found early, we generally can kick the crap out of! Take a look at the video from last year’s effort:
How can you help?
But most importantly, if you are of appropriate age or show a family history, you can help by talking to your Doctor and getting checked. 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer.
We already lose too many of those dear to us. Thanks for your help!
More information about Movember
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 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
Please support my efforts by making a donation at http://mobro.co/OldSchool76.
You can even write a check payable to “Movember Foundation”, reference my name and Registration Number 1369314 and send it to: Movember Foundation, PO Box 2726, Venice, CA 90294-2726
We only have a month to grow Mo’s and raise awareness and funds, so please come along for the ride.
Funds raised will help make a tangible difference to the lives of others. Through the Movember Foundation and their men’s health partners, the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG, Movember is funding world class awareness, research, educational and support programs which would otherwise not be possible.
