Good afternoon Goodjerdom!
This November, I'll be sporting a 'stache in support of Movember. For those of you not familiar with Movember, it's a campaign to raise awareness and funds for men's health issues, prostate cancer in particular. Why focus on men’s health issues? Check out some facts below.
* 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime
* A man is diagnosed with prostate cancer every 2.2 minutes
* 1 in 2 men will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime
* 24% of men are less likely to go the doctor compared to women
In order to gain visibility for this campaign, participating gentlemen will grow a moustache for the month of November. Starting out clean-shaven on November 1st, the gentlemen (also known as Mo Bros), will cultivate a healthy, hairy upper lip for the entire month.
Donations to Movember benefit the Prostate Cancer Foundation and Livestrong.

I'll be updating this space as November progresses, and I hope some of you will join the cause.
