Movember at Phillips – PSA

This month is Movember – for those of you not familiar with this new month, the month formerly known as November, is now Movember and men all over country are dedicating this month to growing moustaches and raising awareness and funds for men’s health. Men will donate their upper lip to the cause for 30 days, clean shaven faces will now sport new moustaches and hopefully spark conversations (and maybe some laughs) all in the name of raising vital awareness and funds for cancers affecting men. This information was sent from Phillips’ Movember Team Captain:

Why are we so passionate about men’s health?
* 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime
* A man is diagnosed with prostate cancer every 2.2 minutes
* 1 in 2 men will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime
* 24% of men are less likely to go the doctor compared to women
