November & Men’s Health

Written on November 15, 2016 at 7:36 pm, by

Are any of you (or the men in your life) participating in two great men’s causes this month; No Shave November or Movember?

No-Shave November’s goal is to grow awareness by men embracing their facial hair, which many cancer patients lose, and letting it grow wild and free. They ask that men donate the money they typically spend on shaving and grooming to educate about cancer prevention, save lives, and aid those fighting the battle.

Movember (a portmanteau of the Australian-English diminutive word for moustache, “mo”, and “November”) is all about the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of various cancers, such as prostate cancer. … The goal of Movember is to “change the face of men’s health.”

Both sound like a great way to bring awareness to very serious men’s health issues. If you haven’t heard of them before, check them out and maybe you (or the men in your life) can finish the month participating in one or be ready next year.

We would love to hear about your involvement with either cause. Tell us your story.
