What’s that on your face? A what? A Mustache? Who actually grows a mustache these days? Well, we all do!
As we fall back, saying goodbye to summer’s warmth we look forward November’s crisp days, turkey trots, football, and Thanksgiving; and most importantly, the celebration of Movember. What is Movember, you ask. It’s a time that is implicitly dedicated to men’s health and prostate/testicular cancer.
How do we embrace Movember? We all grow Mustaches’ and raise awareness and funds dedicated to men’s health. Men typically hesitate to take a proactive approach to their health. Prostate cancer and testicular cancer can be highly curable if caught early. Therefore, early detection is key. As Adam Garone, president of Movember wrote:
“Movember’s mission has never wavered – to have an everlasting impact on the state of men’s health. Our aim is to encourage men to take control of their health, know their family health history, and to be aware of the health issues men should discuss with their doctors.”
We can’t cure cancer by ourselves but we can look ridiculous by growing a mustache for a good cause. So support men’s health causes and prostate/testicular cancer charities and grow a mustache.
