What IS Movember, anyway?

For the past few years at my son's school and in the neighbourhood, usually-clean-shaven gents began to look - well, some of them began to look pretty 70's, to tell the truth. After a while, you just have to ask.


And the answer was: for Movember.

The whole point is to get folks to ask.  When it's on your face, it's easy to talk about it.  Prostate cancer, however, is not so easy to bring up in conversation.  Movember is the movement to help change that.

Here are some links to information, and, should you feel so inclined, to donate (and thanks, Brett, for the links, for donating the space on your face this month).

This Movember, the month formerly known as November many men choose to dedicate their faces to raising awareness about prostate cancer.  The commitment is to grow a moustache for the entire month of Movember, which  will generate conversation, controversy and laughter.
4,400 men die of prostate cancer in Canada each year and one in six men will be diagnosed during his lifetime.
