I'm raising money - #MOVEMBER


 

It's that time of year again where today (1st of Movember) we have a clean shave, then grow whatever Mo (Moustache) we want. The aim of which is to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men.

On Movember 1st, guys register at Movember.com with a clean-shaven face and then for the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts.

Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November and through their actions and words raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.

At the end of the month, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas celebrate their gallantry and valor by either throwing their own Movember party or attending one of the infamous Gala Part├ęs held around the world by Movember, for Movember.   

Men's Health

The average life expectancy for men is four years less than women (presently 78 years old compared to 82).
The rate of cancer diagnoses in men is considerably higher than the rate in women. In every 100,000 men there will be 417 cases diagnosed, compared to 366 cases per 100,000 females.
Evidence suggests that about a third (39%) of 12 common cancers in the UK could be prevented through diet, physical activity and body weight.
1 in 9 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime.
In 2008 37,051 new cases of prostate cancer were diagnosed and 10,168 men died.
Testicular cancer in the UK affects younger men between the ages of 20 and 50. 1,990 men were diagnosed with the disease in 2007.
Smoking accounts for at least 25% of all cancer deaths and 86% of lung cancer deaths.
In 2008 22,846 men were diagnosed with lung cancer and 19,868 men died from the disease.
While not as common, men can get breast cancer. In 2008 about 341 new cases of invasive breast cancer were diagnosed among men and about 69 men died from the disease.
The most common cancer in the UK for men is prostate cancer and for women breast cancer.
In 2008 5,584 men were diagnosed with skin cancer (malignant melanoma) and 1,121 men died from the disease.
An estimated 2.8million people have diabetes and 850,000 do not know it.
About 1 in 3 adults have high blood pressure, and blood pressure tends to rise with age.
1 in 4 men in the UK will experience a mental health problem at some point in their lives.
Men commit suicide four times as often as women.
Only 26% of men go to their GPs for regular check ups.

Let’s face it, men are known to be more indifferent towards their health, especially when compared to the efforts of women, who proactively and publicly address their health issues in a way not traditionally seen with men. As a result, today the levels of awareness, understanding and funding for support of male health issues, like prostate cancer, lag significantly behind causes such as breast cancer.

The reasons for the poor state of men’s health in the UK and around the world are numerous and complex and this is primarily due to a lack of awareness of the health issues men face. This can largely be attributed to the reluctance in men to openly discussing the subject due to longstanding traditions, coupled with an ‘it’ll be alright’ attitude. Men are less likely to schedule doctors’ appointments when they feel ill or for an annual check-up, thereby denying them the chance of early detection and effective treatment of common diseases.
