The Mo’ In MovemberPosted by Guarantee Green Team on November 19th, 2012
Remember that glorious month of November? You know, the month with fall flavors in the air, Thanksgiving on the mind, and cool brisk weather?
Now all those fun memories take a side step to the myriad of moustaches sprouting up all over the world in support of men’s health.
Movember, takes place during the month of November, as a charity event to help raise awareness and funds for prostate and testicular cancer affecting men everywhere. Movember encourages men to grow and maintain a mustache for the entire month.
During this time, Mo Bros (those growing mustaches) ask for donations and, most importantly, spread awareness and knowledge about cancer affecting men.
They share facts like, in 2012 alone, doctors across the United Sates have diagnosed 241,740 new cases of prostate cancer and have reported 28,170 deaths from prostate cancer.
This movement not only encourages the reemergence of the 1970’s fashion, but aims to support research and education to find a cure, create better treatment, and develop early detection technology.
So with a couple weeks left in November, in the spirit of mustaches and the season of thanks, contact or donate to a Mo Bro and help change the face of men’s health.
