Tomorrow is the first day of Movember. This year I have pledged to shave my precious beard on November 1st and grow a mustache for the next 30 days. I'm not alone, already the GWJ Movember group has seven brave men ready to shave and grow for the cause.
If your obligations prevent you from growing a glorious mustache, you can still donate! If you're a lady and you simply cannot grow one, hard as you may try, you can sign up and show your support as a mo sista.
Prostate cancer is second only to non-melanoma skin cancer in the US alone as the leading cancer among men. In 2007, 223,307 were diagnosed and those numbers are growing every day. My father-in-law is among the many fighting this difficult disease. I hope you'll join us in supporting this important research and raising awareness among men that getting checked routinely is essential. Early detection saves lives!
