Movember, the Fight Against Prostrate Cancer

by Neil on October 23, 2008

I‘ve joined the Movember movement! This is a fund and awareness raising campaign for Prostrate Cancer. The task, grow the Mo over the course of a month.

If you would like to sponsor me you can visit the Movember site. To donate to me directly reference my registration number 1383686.

The money raised by Movember is donated directly to the Prostate Cancer Research Foundation of Canada who will use the funds to create awareness and fund research across the country into prevention, detection and treatment, with a goal to ending the threat of prostate cancer.

Did you know:

  • Every year around 24,700 Canadian men are diagnosed with prostate cancer and about 4,300 die of the disease, making it the number one cancer threat to Canadian men.
  • 1 in 7 men will develop prostate cancer in their lifetime.
  • All men over the age of 40 are potentially at risk and should talk to their doctor about the disease and early detection. Prostate cancer is 95% curable if detected and treated early.

Thank you for your support and don’t worry, I’ll be sure to post update pictures for your viewing pleasure. Feel free to leave some suggestions on the style of Mo you’d like to see me grow.
