The month of Movember

Did you know:
  • Prostate cancer is the most common non-skin cancer in the US! (1 in 6 men get it every year!)
  • African American men and those with a family history of prostate cancer are twice as likely to develop the disease and should have regular annual testing starting at 45. All other men should commence testing at 50.
  • Prostate cancer is 90% curable if detected and treated early.

During Movember (the month formerly known as November) I'm growing a Moustache. That's right I'm bringing the Mo back because I'm passionate about tackling men's health issues and being proactive in the fight against prostate cancer.

This being my first year taking part in Movember, I'm starting out slow. A fresh shave on Nov. 1st, and staying inside the lines when I shave. Those of you who remember my haircut senior year in school know that I'm liable to it up a notch next year.

Eastern and Western Moustache Champions:

Separate but equal? You decide.

Also, guys, we still have 2 weeks left in Movember, so if you haven't started, no worries. Just keep a clean face, but leave the stach-region of your choosing!
