Forget October – it’s over – welcome to Movember.
As part of a charity drive to raise’s Male Health awareness, and partly as a team bonding exercise at work, it is time to grow my “Mo”. During Movember (the month formerly known as November) I’ll be growin a Mo (slang for Moustache). That’s right I’m bringing the Mo back to raise funds for The Prostate Cancer Charity because…
- Prostate cancer is now the most common cancer diagnosed in men in the U.K. with at least one man dying every hour from the disease.
- Every year about 35,000 men in the U.K. are diagnosed with prostate cancer and about 10,000 men die from the disease.
- One man in 11 will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime in the U.K.
Several other people at work are signing up for this – to be part of our team, give me a shout. Also, the golden rule of Movember is all participants must start clean shaven. That’s right – the goatee is going into temporary retirement too !
