Why am I a Mo Sister?Why would a girl pretend to have a mustache, when thousand of dollars a year are spent by hundreds of ladies, on products that remove the lady ‘stache. Is it mustache envy, like my friend accuses me of having? Am I jealous of the furry patch between the nose and lip?
The answer to all the questions above are no. Prostate cancer is a serious. If me holding my hair up like mustache, helps someone remember about the seriousness of cancer, that is why.
Most important reason I do this, is to spread awareness.
If I can help one person make an appointment to see the doctor, then job well done.
Here is some information from the Movember Web site:
You don’t have to wait until you are sick to see a doctor. The fact that men continue to die from conditions that are potentially preventable and life expectancy remains low when compared to women, should be evidence enough that a more proactive approach is needed by men when it comes to their health. Movember is working hard to change current statistics and one of the key ways we are doing this is by encouraging men of all ages to have an annual physical. Get into the habit early in life and make it a priority each year.
So Mo Bros, remember to:
- Find a Doctor you are happy with
- Have an annual physical with your Doctor
- Talk to your Doctor about the health risks for your age group, and what to do to reduce them
- Know your body and what is normal for you
- Promptly check out any changes in your body with your Doctor
