It’s that time of the year again, where men all over the world unite to raise awareness of men’s health issues by growing a moustache. The Movember campaigned evolved from a small initiative among friends Australia a few years ago, into a global movement. Movember’s primary focus is in the silent killer, cancer but their focus have also shifted to draw attention on other men’s health including mental health issues such as depression, alcohol dependency and smoking. Locally, their partnership with CANSA is a huge step in addressing men’s health through patient support.
I joined the movement last year – I was part of a movement, yoh! It has become a movement that’s very close to my heart.
Being a first time Mobro was challenging, the mo or tasche was bloody itchy and towards the end, I looked like a small-town detective. Last year was tribute to my late uncle who passed away from throat cancer.
This year, Movember hit home again. My best friend was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year and passed on a few weeks. I miss him. This mo will be a reminder of his fight and I will be wearing it with more pride than ever.
