Movember is back again. The month where men grown out their facial hair, or groom their moustaches into something of spectacular art, all in aid of changing the face of men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and testicular cancer. November 2014 will see men & women support the awareness campaigns, fundraisers and charity events internationally, similar to Blue September for Men’s Cancers and Pink October for Breast Cancer awareness months. There are plenty of ways in which you can get involved, and Killer Fashion is also taking part, promoting moustache fashion for all my readers.
The Movember Foundation aims to change this way of thinking by putting a fun twist on this serious issue. Using the moustache as a catalyst, the idea is to bring about change and give men the opportunity and confidence to learn and talk about their health and take action when needed.
As a global men’s health movement, the Movember Foundation has the ambition to contribute to improving the lives of men around the world. This will be achieved through programs we fund in the areas of – Awareness & Education, Living with Cancer, Research and Mental Health. We see success as moving the dial on progress towards:
- Reduced mortality from prostate, testicular cancer and men’s suicide
- Men living with prostate or testicular cancer being physically and mentally well
- Men and boys understanding how to be mentally healthy and taking action when they experience mental health problems
- Men and boys with mental health problems not being discriminated against
