Today is Day 25 of Movember and I have grown a mustache to try and help promote awareness for men’s health issues. I have a team and am trying to raise money for prostate cancer research, but for me it, as probably with most, the main reason I “mo” (grow a mustache in November) is because I have seen the effects of cancer on men and I want other men to take their health seriously.
When I was in high school the father of one of my best friends died of prostate cancer after a long struggle and lots of treatment. When my wife and I were on our honeymoon, her mom’s cousin died of prostate cancer, also after a long and painful treatment process. More recently, my uncle died after a long battle with cancer.
