Movember

Have you heard of this?
Last year was the first year I had heard of this fundraiser because of a friend who was part of the campaign. 
Here is the low down.
"During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in the US and around the world. With their Mo’s, these men raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men."


How awesome is this? I mean after reading that statistics on prostate cancer and finding out that 1 in 6 men will get it made me a little sick to my stomach. That is a greater risk than us women getting breast cancer and yet we don't hear much about it. 
After reading on the Prostate Cancer Foundation's website what an asset the Movember Fundraising is to their research I was even more proud of my husband for taking part of this campaign. 


"Movember has initiated a growing international dialog on prostate cancer and men’s health and is an invaluable partner in energizing the global research enterprise for prostate cancer. Here in the U.S., unrestricted funding from Movember is helping the Prostate Cancer Foundation accelerate the world’s most promising research, enabling game-changing projects from whole genome sequencing and the development of innovative therapies. These will help men with advanced prostate cancer live longer, more productive lives than ever before.”  - Dr. Jonathan Simons, CEO and President of the Prostate Cancer Foundation 


Though what he is doing is admirable, I'm not gonna lie, I'm not a fan of the stache. I know this a dream come true for Micah since he has been wanting to grow one for some time but due to corporate policy hasn't been able to have facial hair for about eight years.
 So basically his office "no facial hair" policy has worked in my favor considering most mustaches, now I said most, not all, mustaches creep me out. Especially when they are on someone who shouldn't have one, like say... my hubby. He doesn't have the sketchy "should be driving a windowless van around schoolyards" type of look but more of a Magnum PI jumping out of helicopters look. Which ultimately cracks me up every time I look at him. I can take NOTHING he says seriously because it is just too comical. I love him, and love that he is raising money for this cause, but come Dec. 1st that Stache is Trash. Fo realz, it's gotta go.

Not only is his "new look" a good laugh but so is his team's name. 
pretty snazzy huh?
