November, err Movember is now in full effect. What is Movember? Movember is a movement that started in Australia to raise awareness for prostate cancer. Men around the world shave clean on Movember 1st, then grow a mo for the rest of the month.
What many people don’t know is that 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer to afflict Canadian men with 25,500 diagnosed and 4,400 dying from the disease each year.
Facts like these have convinced me I should get involved. I am hoping that you will support my efforts by making a donation. The funds raised go directly to Prostate Cancer Canada.
To make a donation you can either
- Go to my movember page and donate online
- call Movember at 1-855-4GROW MO (1-855-447-6966)
I will send out weekly updates on my progress too (both donation count, and moustache growth). Since Sue is going to be away for half the month, this year I’ve decided to grow the coveted Trucker. In case you are wondering what that looks like, the styles are here (or look at my halloween costume).
Now for some pictures.
