Grow a moustache for Movember

Grow a moustache for Movember

Movember is a global phenomenon and annual event - Grow a moustache to raise awareness of health conditions and issues that affect men : prostate cancer, testicular cancermental health and suicide prevention.

Every year 10,000 men due of prostate cancer and suicide is the biggest cause of death in men under 50. Globally a man dies from suicide every minute.

Movember is aiming to slash these rates by 25 per cent by 2030 and is working with several mental health initiatives in order to achieve that goal.

But it isn't just mental health issues that are taking men's lives too soon. Prostate cancer and testicular cancer claim far too many lives because men aren't willing to talk about it with their GP.

Testicular cancer is one of the most treatable male cancers with a 95 per cent survival rate if it is caught early.
