Movember is a worldwide event that essentially sees a lot of men grow a moustache / mustache for the entire month of November – hence Movember.
The event is in aid of prostate cancer, something that has personally affected my family more than once. If you wanted to, I’d be honored if you would sponsor me here. Click on Donate to Me, no amount is too small.
Every hour a man in the UK dies of prostate cancer. You can learn more about it here, details from the site are below:
Each year, Movember, the month formerly known as November, is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces around the world, with the sole aim of raising vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer.
Men sporting Movember moustaches, known as Mo Bros, become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November and through their actions and words raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.
Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo growing efforts. The rules are simple; register online at Movember.com and start the month of Movember clean shaven, then grow a moustache during November.
The money raised as a result of Movember is channelled by our men’s health partner into a number of world class and innovative education, support, research and awareness initiatives. Movember UK collaborates with the men’s health partner – The Prostate Cancer Charity.
You can donate in any currency and take part yourself in your part of the world. I will of course post an update of the final product, it’s already coming along rather well!

Just been diagnosed with low grade prostate cancer. Still a cancer, but have caught it early it seems and treatment today is very positive. So will have it out if necessary. I am 28 and sure as hell will not miss it or the cancer. Looking forward to the next years and can’t wait for treatment and getting it out of the way. Have a urinary infection at present due to biopsy, am more fed up with that than my cancer results, as I am feeling a bit lethargic. Antibiotics always make me down.thanks! @DAISY:)
A perineal prostatectomy is often the preferred choice for older men or men who might be poor surgical risks. This approach takes less time and there is less bleeding. http://www.health-tourism.com/prostate-cancer-treatment/thailand/
