It is well known that Men are tough.
We are so tough that we think we cannot get sick - hey - we don't have time for all that silly sickness stuff (it is a sign of weakness, right?), even when it involves issues that primarily effect men, such as prostate and testicular cancer and mental health challenges.
Well, the fact is women cannot get prostate and testicular cancer. So it is up to MEN and the women and men who love them to step up and fund research for prevention and cures for these cancers. When it comes to mental wellness - more women REPORT issues around depression, but more MEN take their own lives from depression and other mental health challenges.
A moustache is the mark of a man, and today it's a symbol to spark conversations about important health issues. Only a few generations have been given the opportunity to make a difference in their hour of need, pledge to grow a moustache for change, or support those that do.
For 30 days only I have been granted permission to Grow My Mo, but I need your help to financially support research to address prostate cancer, testicular cancer and male mental health initiatives. I have a donation page (tax deductible for anything over $25) if you are so inclined at
If you are already supporting another Movember participant - THANK YOU (please ask them to join the FNHA team at ).
Men who support Movember, called Mo Bros, start by registering at Movember.com.
