Movember

October 31, 2018

 

 

 

Each Year Movember is responsible for thousands of moustaches on mend faces in the uk and around the world, with men growing moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men's health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men's suicide.

 

The Movember Foundation runs the Movember charity event, housed at Movember.comThe goal of Movember is to "change the face of men's health." By encouraging men (whom the charity refers to as "Mo Bros") to get involved, Movember aims to increase early cancer detection, diagnosis and effective treatments, and ultimately reduce the number of preventable deaths. Besides annual check-ups, the Movember Foundation encourages men to be aware of family history of cancer and to adopt a healthier lifestyle.
