Here’s a photo gallery of me in various stages of facial hair-ery over the past month or so. If I recall, this might not display correctly on my phone, perhaps yours too, sorry. I only bring this up because of how I’m participating in Movember and need your help. You see, the goal of Movember is to raise money and awareness of men’s health issues. We all grow mustaches or beards and post non-stop about it during November!
Male health issues don’t generally get a lot of press, even though they exist and are serious deals. A lot of it has to do with men ourselves. Who wants to talk about butt cancer, amiright? But check out these stats from Cancer.org:
About 238,590 new cases of prostate cancer will be diagnosed in 2013
About 29,720 men will die of prostate cancer in 2013
1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during their lifetime
So there’s some stats for you. There’s other cancers too, not just the ol’ prostate. We’ll find out more about them as the month of November progresses.
If you would be so kind to at least click over to my Movember page and check it out. If you then decide to donate a little bit that’d be cool. No pressure or anything, I already gave myself $10 so I’m not gonna get skunked! Haha.
