Some of us men tend to be too busy, too lazy or just too proud to take care of ourselves. It’s the “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” attitude from our fathers' generation.
Johnny Gettin' 'er done before the game.
I assume by now that you have heard of Movember in support of Prostate Cancer Canada. Some of us have decided to donate our faces to raising awareness about prostate cancer for the month of Movember (formerly November). While the funds raised are great, more important to us is the discussion and awareness that it raises every time someone looks at our varied, uneven, scruffy, partially grey Mos.
For the cause !!
4,400 men die of prostate cancer in Canada each year and one in seven men will be diagnosed during his lifetime. That’s the equivalent of two guys on any hockey team and one of our close friends we golf with each week. Those rates are staggering. Not that we won’t ask you for funds to support Prostate Cancer Canada, because we will - the real reason we are doing this is to raise the conversation with you to ensure that every man you know over 40 has had their exam this year. If they haven’t, please encourage them to book an appointment.

Many thanks to Brian Spilak of the Bruins for putting this together and getting the guys participating ( and talking ...)
If you have any Movember pics or links to Youtube videos, send them to me at email@example.com and I'll get them posted
