These days is November, but for some it is Movember:
It’s happening again: the Mo (Moustache) is teaming up with November (the month) to change the face of men’s health and fight back against prostate cancer. This year, along with many other men, I will be growing a delightful upper-lip warmer to raise money for this cause. For those unfamiliar with Movember – it is a phenomenon that has replaced the month of November, during which time men grow Mos to support prostate cancer research.
Inspired by these above words of his friend, Alec decided to take part. Alec’s words:
This Movember, the month formerly known as November I’ve decided to donate my face to raising awareness about prostate cancer. My donation and commitment is the growth of a moustache for the entire month of Movember, which I know will generate conversation, controversy and laughter.
I’m doing this because 4,400 men die of prostate cancer in Canada each year and one in six men will be diagnosed during his lifetime.
This is a cause that I feel passionately about and I’m asking you to support my efforts by making a donation to Prostate Cancer Canada.
