Help a Mo Out
If you have never heard of the movement before, Movember are the global leading charity changing the face of men’s health. They are doing this by raising funds and awareness for men’s mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer.
ver the past decade, it has become clearer that the stigma surrounding men’s health and speaking about their feelings has taken a massive toll of men’s lives. It has been proven that men are dying on average 6 years earlier than women, and it is mainly due to preventable reasons.
And yet, many people are unaware and are not taking actions to stop this.
In fact, one man dies by suicide every minute of every day across the world. Plus, testicular cancer is the most common cancer among men aged 15 – 39 years of age and more than 1.3 million men are diagnosed with prostate cancer each year.
Many of these men suffer in silence for years, scared to turn to people for help and afraid of what people may think. Men experiencing the side effects of men health, cancer diagnosis and treatments should never have to feel alone. That is why Movember is standing up and making a difference.
Through the money raised, Movember connect with experts on a global scale, collaborating on projects that will change the way men in need are treated and supported. Their network allows for people to share research and results, accelerating progress and taking action.
