It’s that time of the year, Movember is here and it’s time to make a difference!
Some of you may have seen me last year, between the shock, surprise and inevitable laugh, none of you went indifferent to my growing November Mustache! I’d like to take sometime to actually explain, what’s this all about and especially why I’m giving my face to help raise awareness (and funds) on Men’s health and in particular on the devastating prostate cancer.
Starting every year on the November 1st, Movember asks men across the world to grow a moustache during the month of November, so starting from a clean-shaven face there’s a few crazy ones everywhere that will dedicate themselves to growing a fine moustache during the rest of this cold month. One can laugh of the results, but to me it’s a minor effort if by doing it I can help save the life of someone close to me!
Raising awareness and funds is vital everyone, as an example, take the German facts on prostate cancer:
- Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in Germany
- In Germany, 60,000 men are diagnosed every year
- In Germany, 30 men die every day from prostate cancer. In one year these are 11,000 men that die from prostate cancer in Germany.
Funds raised in Germany will be allocated to the Bundesverband Prostatakrebs Selbsthilfe e. V. (BPS). But feel free to donate within your own country.
So if you’d like to know more, or donate something for this cause, the size of which isn’t important (I heard this somewhere before!), but every little bit does indeed help Movember cause and its funding of world class health programs, then just head down to http://mobro.co/pedrocustodioDE and help.
To all of you thank you in advance!
Have a great, healthy year!
