08 Nov Movember. Talk about it.
I finally decided to grow a moustache, but don’t worry — it’s temporary and for a cause! The month of November is also know as “Movember” — a genuine campaign to bring awareness to men’s health and prostate cancer. It’s serious business:
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men. It accounts for over a quarter (27%) of new cancer cases in men. Even 1 in 7 Canadian men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer. Yet prostate cancer is over 90% curable.
So I’m walking around with a moustache these days, and it’s an excellent catalyst to get people talking about these issues and opening up about men’s health in general.
I just set up a page online to accept donations. I’m really looking mostly to be part of the swarm of moustache-laden men talking about Movember, but happy to have my page as a donation page for Prostate Cancer Canada and Movember.

Thanks for your support — I don’t do this often (or often enough).
