The month of November has been re-branded as "Movember" to promote awareness and raise funds to support research into men's health issues, specifically mental health, prostate cancer and testicular cancer.
Throughout the month, "Mo Bros" commit to growing a mustache from a clean start, to start conversations about men's health issues. The Movember Foundation website features health facts, such as that more than four times as many men as women die by suicide in the United States, and that 1 in 5 adults each year experience an anxiety disorder.
If you become a "Mo Bro" send us a picture of your mustache and we might share it on our site and social media feeds!
