Kildare men asked to grow mustaches for Movember

The Mercy Health Foundation and Man Up Mahoning Valley are again asking Mahoning Valley men to grow facial hair during November to raise awareness of and start a community conversation about prostate cancer.

The charity aims to draw attention to men's health issues such as prostate cancer and suicide.

You may see a lot of men who look like they need a shave in November. Movember's vision is to have an everlasting impact on the face of men's health. It's not about being the fittest or the fastest, it's about having fun, doing good and raising funds along the way.

Since launching in Ireland in 2008, Movember has been the primary funder of prostate cancer initiatives in Ireland through a partnership with the Irish Cancer Society.

"Earlier detection of prostate cancer results in earlier treatment and better medical outcomes", he said.

The Movember Foundation says its strategy is to infiltrate places where the message is most needed and reduce premature deaths in men by 25 percent by 2030.

Men and women can call 0208 032 4067 or visit 12x3gym.co.uk to get involved in fundraising. "We want men suffering from prostate cancer to maintain control of their lives as they undergo treatment, improve their mobility, mental wellbeing and, ultimately, their quality of life". In 2016, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas from across Canada helped raise $80 million for the Movember Foundation.
