Movember is a month long international initiative raising awareness and money for men's health (prostate & testicular cancer and men's mental health).
My MOTIVATION for getting involved is because my uncle passed away from prostate cancer. I would like to keep his memory alive by helping to create awareness, especially to the men within my community, about the benefits of taking a proactive approach towards being healthy. As well, I would like people know they should not be embarrassed about seeking help. There are men in our lives who are our support systems, as well, we are should be theirs. The more we educate ourselves & others about these causes the bigger steps we take towards finding their cures.
I will be speaking in more detail about Movember at an upcoming Movember themed World Culture Bazaar talent night. Hope you can make it out and support the men in our community and around the world.
