Our family loves getting involved with wonderful causes. We also love when these causes come with a little challenge! If there is a man in your life -husband, boyfriend, brother, father, grandfather- this is the cause for them! Grow a mustach for a month, raise awareness and maybe even some funds for an amazing cause.
A good friend’s father suffered from prostate cancer and bladder cancer. No one should have to go though this and certainly not at such a young age. Thankfully, for his family and him, he is a cancer survivor. However, It is because of this man’s experience that we have become more educated. We want that for others as well. My husband has joined a team to help raise awareness and make strides to reduce the number of men dying prematurely.
The Movember Foundation is the only worldwide charity that addresses men’s health year round. Some of men’s biggest health concerns are prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health, and suicide prevention. Prostate cancer rates will double in the next 15 years, Testicular cancer rates have already doubled in the last 50 years and three quarters of all suicides are men. These number are terrifying, which is why the Movember Foundation has created a goal to reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25%, by 2030. Let’s help these amazing men live healthier and fuller lives!
