September is National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month.
Yeah, I know. It’s November. We kind of missed it.
But it’s not too late to shed a bit of light on this potentially devastating disease that will affect 1 in 6 men. In fact, a man is 35% more likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer than a woman is to be diagnosed with breast cancer. It’s pretty popular. However, with early detection and treatment there is a greater than 90% cure rate.
The dudes over at DadCentric have joined forces to raise awareness by participating in the Movember Foundation’s moustache growing charity event held during November each year to raise funds and awareness for men’s health.
As I considered the implications of such an event I thought, “You mean, I can not shave for a month and say I’m doing it for charity? My sloth a worthwhile endeavor?”
It’s we call in the business a “win/win” situation.
Count me in. I’ll be more than happy to do nothing — if it’s for a good cause.
So here’s me. Yesterday. Movember 1rst. Smooth.
Like I really needed a reason not to shave!
