Movember Days


November? I think you mean Movember.

1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime, and yet for some reason it is never talked about. But, together we really can help change this.

I implore all of my readers to please get involved with raising awareness this month, whether it be by growing a fine mustache of your own, asking your boyfriend/husband/father/brother/son to grow one, or simply donning a funny fake. If mustaches don't seem quite up your alley (although the image above may tempt you otherwise), you can still help to raise money and awareness.

Please click to get more information from The Prostate Cancer Charity or to get involved with Movember.

  2. my father already has a mustache (he looks like santa). I think it's a funny alternative way to promote awareness.

    Hope you had a lovely weekend dear.

  12. This hits home so much. My dad had prostate cancer about 6 years back and a lot of men don't even think about that this could happen to them. He went through about 3 weeks that he had to stay in bed. But after the surgery and some meds he became himself again. But men really need to be concerned about this issue and get tested yearly. It is very important. Great blog post, dear. :)

  16. Well, I'm not going to grow a mustache (sorry, LOL!) but I will make sure my boyfriend does. I actually work with a few guys who grow facial hair every November for this cause. :) I think it's pretty cool!

  17. Fantastic way to raise awareness! It is such a serious health issue and often goes undiscussed. I have a mustache already!

  18. Haha, luckily I bought a fake mustache the other day! I keep it in my wallet in case of a mustache-related emergency and this definitely qualifies as one.

  19. Great post! I feel like a lot of guys I know are indifferent about health issues and going to the doctor so it's great you are getting the word out. Hope you had a wonderful Halloween!

  21. Great way to raise awareness! I just wish I could grow a mustache because I seriously can't. It's like an weird gene of my that I just can't grow one. I rarely ever shave for that matter!
