Also known as Movember
Support Men’s Health Awareness
No Shave November is a campaign created to grow awareness by letting your hair grow for 30 days. Men are challenged to grow out their facial hair, beard, mustache, whatever they can stand! This movement was created to raise awareness of Men’s Health issues, including a number of diseases and illnesses;
- Prostate Cancer
- Testicular Cancer
- Poor Mental Health – Depression
- Physical inactivity
The goal of the Movember
The campaign is to spread awareness by men growing out their hair and letting it grow wild and free. (With minimal trimming except for professional dress code reasons of course) This being something cancer patients do not have the opportunity to do.
Two Most Common Cancers in Men
Testicular Cancer and Prostate Cancer are seen to be the two most common cancers among men. The No Shave November (no-shave.org) campaign has risen over $650 million helping fund over 1,000 programs on these issues affecting men. The campaign also focuses on benefiting all cancer research.
