It’s Movember 2014. If you don’t know what that means, keep reading. (Actually, keep reading if you do, too!)
I have joined hundreds of thousands of people across the globe in educating men about taking care of their health. For instance, every year, 1 in 36 men will die from prostate cancer, accounting for 22% of all male deaths from cancer. There are about 8,820 new cases of testicular cancer diagnosed every year. And, in 2010, approximately 29,156 men died from suicide. (Source: The Movember Foundation)
At AgeInPlace.com, we take living your best life very seriously; that includes taking care of yourself. Get involved by donating to the Movember Foundation (my donation page) and learning more about men’s health issues, so you can take care of yourself and talk with the men in your life about their health.
About Movember 2014
Movember is a campaign by the Movember Foundation to educate men about prostate cancer, testicular cancer and other men’s health issues. If you are unfamiliar with it, men who get involved grow a mustache during the month of November to show a sign of support and commit to discussing men’s health issues with every man they can.
The Movember 2014 slogan is, “Made in Movember. We are doers. We are makers. We are growers. ”
Movember is about education and action. The men and women who support the campaign (yes, women get involved too … although, I dont’ know how many actually grow a mustache) make a commitment to educating themselves and help others be better to themselves and their families by taking care of their health.
Movember Action!Join me for Movember 2014 in educating men about health issues and fighting men’s cancer. Please consider donating to my team as we raise awareness and money for this worthy cause.
I will post updates throughout Movember on our team’s progress and men’s health issues. So, stay tuned!
You can also share men’s health information from the Movember Foundation website or others with your friends, family and online networks. Talk with the men in your life about their health. Start conversations that can help them take better care of themselves.
