3 disturbing facts that every wife should know about Movember

If you’ve gone into hibernation early, there’s the possibility that you’ve missed the fact that all around us, the men in our country are sporting moustaches. Or what their particular genetics happens to allow them to grow as a moustache. No, you’re not having a bad flashback to the 70s, it’s Movember.

Movember has two goals: to raise funds to battle prostate cancer and to raise awareness of men’s health issues in general. It’s a great charity. Last year, 88% of all funds raised went directly to charity, with only 12% going to fundraising and admin costs. That’s 22.3 million dollars directly to Prostate Cancer Canada.

This is the first year that Hubby has participated. And in doing so, I’ve discovered three disturbing facts that I feel I should share with you. Because they’re important.

Fact #1:  1 in 7 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Fact #2:  Studies show that men don’t get health checks regularly, but prostate cancer is 90% curable if detected early.

Fact #3:  You may find yourself irresistibly attracted to this new moustache-ioed look of your man.

The moral of the story? Call your husband/partner/friend/uncle/brother/father and tell them to go and get a health check!

Now, pass it on …. let’s keep raising awareness around prostate cancer and men’s health in general. Cause, for better or for worse, life just wouldn’t be the same without them.

  1. A very important message for all men. Like mammograms for women, early detection is vital.
