It’s “Movember” – Follow my “mogress” here

For those of you that don’t know, Movember is a fund-raising imitative aimed at raising awareness of “men’s health” issues, in particular prostate cancer & testicular cancer, and raising money for charities working to fight them.

Prostate cancer kills over 10,000 men in the UK every year, a similar number of men to the number of women killed by breast cancer – and yet prostate cancer receives a lot less publicity. Movember is trying to change that. Testicular cancer if far less of a killer – it only killed 75 men in 2010 – but it does leave thousands of men infertile each year.

The idea behind movember is that men around the world grow a moustache throughout the month of November and post pictures of their upper-lip adornment for the world to enjoy (read, laugh at). Also, it’s a celebration of that once fashionable and so cool it ought to be brought back male facial growth.

And in case you hadn’t quite guessed, I’m movembering this year. You can donate to my efforts on my Mospace, and follow my ‘mogress’ on this blog, my facebook and my twitter.
