Movember means moustaches and a focus on men’s health, especially prostate cancer.
September may be prostate cancer awareness month, but the spotlight on prostate cancer doesn't stop there. In November the spotlight is back on men's health....and on moustaches. Yep, that is right, November has been labeled, "November" and during this month, men are encouraged to skip shaving and start sporting a moustache all in an effort to raise awareness about important health screenings for men to protect against prostate cancer and other illnesses.
In just over 10 years, the Movember movement has raised over $700 million and helped fund over 1,200 research projects that are vital to men’s health including prostate and testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.
